The Saco-Lowell Shops were once one of the largest textile machine manufacturers in the United States. It was formed in 1912 when Saco-Pettee Machine Shop consolidated with Lowell Machine Shop to become Saco-Lowell; the company had manufacturing facilities in Massachusetts in the towns of Lowell and Newton, and in Biddeford, Maine.
Saco-Lowell, a descendent of the old Saco Water Power Company machine shop, closed around 1960, ending the manufacturing of textile machinery in Biddeford.
