Menasco Manufacturing was established by Albert Menasco in Los Angeles in 1926.  The company's first product was an air-cooled rebuild of a Salmson radial.

In 1929, Menasco introduced the 4-A, the first of what was to become its main product line, the inverted, in-line engine.

Menasco was deeply involved with air racing and his products were popular with racers looking for small displacement engines.

The company ended engine development and manufacturing after World War II.  Most recently Menasco Aerospace was known for its landing gear and, as part of Coltec Industries, was acquired by Goodrich Aerospace in 1999.
