Santa Fe Springs, California

Santa Fe Springs is a city in Los Angeles County, California. Incorporated in 1957, Santa Fe Springs has a current population of just over 16,000. From an early history of ranching and petroleum production, Santa Fe Springs has developed into city of industry, with defense, automotive and aerospace industries at the forefront. Among the city's top employers are Presto Food Products, motorcycle racing products supplier Vance & Hines, and Trojan Battery Company.

Santa Fe Springs was founded in 1871 by J.E. Fulton as Fulton Wells. Early development centered on the town's mineral springs. A year-round resort hotel, baths and swimming hole were built, and the mineral water was also bottled and sold as a medicinal tonic. Oil was discovered in 1921, and derricks began to sprout on the new Santa Fe Springs oil field. Despite some early difficulty with "blow-outs" which resulted in spectacular well fires, Santa Fe Springs soon became a successful oil town. The Wilshire Oil Company refinery, built in 1936, was sold to Gulf Oil Corporation in 1960, and later to Golden West Refining Company in 1983. The refinery ceased operations in 1992. The Powerine Oil Company refinery operated, with a brief interruption and several changes of owner, from 1934 until 1995. In the second half of the 20th century, the city developed a number of automotive parts businesses. The Moon Equipment Company was founded in the 1950s. Today, renamed Mooneyes for their well-known cartoon logo, they continue to sell specialty hot-rod parts and accessories from their original shop location. The Egge Machine Company, makers of vintage engine parts, arrived in 1972. Santa Fe Springs is also home to U. S. Aerospace, Inc., which produces aircraft assemblies for aerospace manufacturers.
