Alberton, Maryland ( circa 1860 )

1088's lithograph of Alberton Maryland, whose name was later changed to Daniels.

The town of Alberton was later renamed to Daniels Maryland when the C.R.Daniels Company acquired the mill, houses and surrounding property.


In 1920, C.R. Daniels, Inc. consisted of a small sail loft in New York City.  Three Trumpbour brothers; James, Frederick, and Edward, who were just out of their teens, purchased the business.  Frederick Trumpbour managed​ the business and was president until his death in 1953. James worked in sales and  Edward, who joined the company in 1925 worked in sales until  his death in 1963.  The second generation was represented by Frederick, Jr. and Edward, Jr.   Edward, Jr. worked in the New York sales office until his retirement in 1987, and Frederick, Jr. served in the purchasing department until his retirement in 1990.  The Trumpbour family continues to own the controlling stock in the corporation.  

While C.R. Daniels formerly concentrated on fabric products for shipping - steamship, truck, and rail -  it was later diversified in products and industries served, making it necessary to move to a six-story building on Crosby Street in New York City.  After weathering the depression, C.R. Daniels continued to expand in 1937 with a plant in Newark, New Jersey.  

In 1940,  C.R. Daniels purchased a mill in Alberton, Maryland ( Pictured above in an 1800's lithograph ).  The company later renamed the town Daniels.  During the 1950's and '60's, the Daniels plant was enlarged 100% in order to manufacture additional products.  It was the main office and manufacturing plant until Hurricane Agnes and the flood of 1972.  

Presently, C.R. Daniels operates two major plants, one in Rutledge, Tennessee, and the other in Ellicott City, Maryland.  The Rutledge, Tennessee plant opened in 1961 and​ has been expanded several times to its present 100,000+ sq. ft. of manufacturing and warehouse space.  The plant in Ellicott City was built to specification in 1976, and houses our administrative and sales offices, as well as 160,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and warehouse space.  

Consistent growth has defined the past thirty years for C.R. Daniels as processes and markets continue to grow.  In addition to our sewing and fabric capabilities, we have grown and continue to expand in plastic molding.  Today, the company's products range from Wild Duck Handbags and Totes to high-tech Energy Absorption Troop seats for the Blackhawk Helicopter; and from canvas baskets, hampers, and trucks to large rotationally molded bulk units.  

Our diversified manufacturing capabilities and our commitment to continuous improvement allow us to combine our expertise across many product lines from textiles and fabric items to metal working and plastic forming, offering a unified product approach to a diverse customer base.​
