     History
    Founded in 1911 as the Porcelain Enamel Manufacturing Corporation, this company made porcelain enamel coatings for kitchen and bathroom appliances, barbecue grills and floor tiles. Founder Karl Turk Sr., a German immigrant, was considered the "father of the porcelain enameling industry," after inventing the process that converted porcelain to a wet form that could coat iron. Pemco was also the first Baltimore business to have its own heliport. Opened on Sept. 17, 1958, it was built in one day for $3,000. Officials wanted a faster way to get its executives and products to Friendship International Airport, now called Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, and to Pier 4 on Pratt Street. The helicopter flight to Friendship airport took only eight minutes, officials said, as opposed to 25 minutes through Harbor Tunnel traffic. The company did not always have a good relationship with its East Baltimore neighbors. In 1979, city officials called on the company to clean up lead contamination on the property. A year earlier, the company was required to install devices that monitored fluoride emissions. In 1980, Pemco's then-owner, Mobay Chemical Corp., paid a $10,000 government fine for excessive fluoride emissions. Now it is being eyed suspiciously by nearby residents for its commercial development potential, thanks to a proposal six years ago that would have brought a Walmart to the site.
