The Joshua Hendy Iron Works was an American engineering company that existed from the 1850s to the late 1940s. It was at one time a world leader in mining technology and its equipment was used to build the Panama Canal, among other major projects. The company went on to serve many different markets during the course of its existence, but is perhaps is best remembered today for its contribution to the American shipbuilding industry during World War II.
In 1947, the Joshua Hendy Iron Works was sold to the Westinghouse Corporation. In the postwar period, the plant continued to produce military equipment including missile launching and control systems for nuclear-powered submarines, and anti-aircraft guns. It also produced pressure hulls for undersea vehicles, nuclear power plant equipment, 216,000 horsepower (161,000 kW) wind tunnel compressors, large diameter radio telescopes, diesel engines and electrical equipment. In 1996, Westinghouse sold the plant to Northrop Grumman, which renamed it Northrop Grumman.
