Explore Ancra Cargo's collection of historical documents and records that provide a glimpse into the evolution of products and catalogs within the company.
Ancra Cargo was established in 1969 when its five founding engineers began manufacturing air cargo tiedowns in a small facility in El Segundo, California, just south of LAX. Ancra started with the mission to improve safety and security for the material handling industry and originally focused on the airline industry but quickly realized that engineered products were needed in every market segment that moved quantities of cargo, and our comprehensive product lines were born. Today, Ancra has many facilities worldwide and is one of the largest companies in the industry.
Through the use of superior design, quality materials and attention to detail, Ancra's advanced engineering capabilities raised product performance to a new level. And as our engineers worked closely with customers to solve diverse cargo handling challenges, an additional need was discovered - for loading systems. Clearly, not only is it important to keep cargo secure in transit, it's also important to load and unload it safely and efficiently. Today, Ancra products are hard at work on land, in the air, and on the sea, serving all phases of the material handling industry.
