Carson is Headquarter for Oldest California Business
Did You Know?
That the oldest enterprise still doing business in California is headquartered in the City of Carson? In mid-1800, Charles L Ducommun walked to Los Angeles from Arkansas with a mule wagon full of goods to sell. Ducommun opened a general store in 1849 when the population of Los Angeles was 1,600. In the early 1900’s Ducommun started supplying the emerging aerospace industry, which grew to their current role as a global provider of manufacturing and engineering services for aerospace, defense, industrial, natural resources and medical markets.
