Town of Riverdale ParkAeronautical engineer Henry Berliner (1895-1970) founded the Engineering Research Corporation (ERCO) in 1930 and built its research and production facility just east of here in 1937. The company specialized in the design and production of a small, single-propeller craft called the Ercoupe. Like most industries during World War II, ERCO committed a significant portion of its production capability to the war effort, particularly with the manufacture of gun turrets.
