Fred and Dorothy McFarland began McFarland Specialty, in Casper, Wyoming. A manufacturer’s warehouse, McFarland was built out of the recognition for critical operations components to be available close to the industries that needed them in the remote areas of the Rockies. Shipping distances and minimal transportation availability had a profound impact on the region, and delivering these solutions caused McFarland to grow strongly throughout the decade of the 1960’s.
