Ewing Controls – Greenfield, MA

Ewing Controls is an 11-employee worker cooperative producing automated controls for steam turbine equipment, based in Greenfield, MA.   The owners decided to sell to employees after their 30-year tenure because it offered the best future for the business, both in terms of the expertise within the employees and protection against a more hostile acquisition from a larger firm.  The transition took a year, and was supported in part by a State small-business retention program.
