Day & Zimmermann

Innovation is in our DNA

Innovation_NEW

The origins of Day & Zimmermann date back to 1901 and a mere seven years after our founding, the company was working on one of the most significant human engineering achievements of the twentieth century—the construction building of the Gatun Lock system of the Panama Canal. By the 1960s, Day & Zimmermann was assisting with the design of the Mercury and Gemini capsules that would put the first American astronauts in space. These history-altering projects had ties right here in Philadelphia.
