There is a lot of significance in both Northern Stacks’ name and logo. The name hearkens back to the Northern Pump Company, the occupant of the site during World War II. During this time, Northern Pump built crucial parts for war ships fighting all over the globe. They received the Battle E award from the Navy, which stood for “Excellence and Efficiency.” In fact, the company received this award 5 additional times, and was awarded a star each time that could be seen on the smoke stacks – the other major part of the name and logo. With a rich history of the solid Midwestern work ethic, Northern Stacks is a place people can be proud to be located.
