Peterson Manufacturing was founded in 1945 and has been under the present ownership since 1956. The company has enjoyed more than five decades of continuous financial growth. We are privately owned with the majority ownership in the Armacost family, who are active in the day-to-day affairs of the business. Because we are a privately held company, we do not release full financial statements to outside parties. However, we feel it is important for prospective customers to have a good sense of comfort about our ability to meet their needs. Peterson and its subsidiary companies had net sales for year 2011 of $257,000,000. Our net worth on November 30, 2011 was 90,000,000. Peterson's banking reference for the past 50 years is UMB Bank, N./A., Kansas City, Missouri. Mr. Robert P. Elbert, Senior Vice President, may be contacted at (816) 860-7116, if you desire. UMB Bank has extended to Peterson and its affiliates $60,000,000 in lines of credit, not all of which was used at year-end or currently. We can also furnish you with supplier references to satisfy any credit needs. You can also access additional information about Peterson from Dun & Bradstreet's report on us at DUNS No. 00-714-6095.
