Charles F. Wallace and Martin F. Tiernan. These are hardly household names and certainly not recognizable to many when thinking about the great U.S. inventors of the early twentieth century. And yet the accomplishments of these two individuals rival those of Edison, Westinghouse, and Ford, except that instead of introducing new products to make life easier, Wallace & Tiernan focused on products to provide one of man's most basic needs.
Starting in 1934 with a new application in the fresh produce field, W&T's Decco Division developed chlorinated and other washes as well as waxes for fruits and vegetables.
To go along with these processes, WALLACE & TIERNAN acquired the American Machinery Corp. in 1955. AMC manufactured a complete line of produce handling equipment: roller conveyors, automatic counters, baggers, sorters, and graders. AMC produced some unusual equipment, such as a giant pulp dryer for making cattle feed from citrus peelings. These processes saved the growers and shippers money and, more importantly, Decco-treated produce kept better and therefore meant less moldy, rotten fruit, potatoes, etc., on the pantry shelf.
Decco’s postharvest solutions include coatings, cleaners, sanitizers, fungicides, growth regulators and antiscald. In several countries Decco has also developed equipment solutions with teams of mechanical representatives available to assist you with your packing needs.
