100 Years: Twin Disc’s Heritage Gallery

This year Twin Disc is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding.  In 1918 Mr. P. H. Batten and his partners developed the first “twin disc” clutch for farm tractors and soon broadened its application into construction equipment.  The company prospered and expanded as it was led by succeeding family generations, John H. Batten and Michael Batten.

Although little-known to many individuals, Twin Disc remains a leader in their industry. The company continues to grow and make products for a diversified mix of vehicles and equipment, as well as tackling new engineering challenges and providing custom solutions to make things work better.

Within the past few months, fourth-generation family member and current CEO John Batten, and especially his wife Jane, have developed a remarkable Heritage Gallery to showcase the company’s century of history with displays of machine parts, historic documents, and interesting memorabilia. Above all, the modern museum-like space honors the people who have worked there from the past to the present.

Join us to hear about the history of this local company and share their pride in celebrating their centennial.

Parking is available in the company lot on Racine Street, just across the street from the entrance.
