Anvil Corporation is founded by Larry K. Levorsen in Ferndale, WA. Larry founded Anvil after 20 years of engineering and construction experience with refining and petrochemical projects in the United States, South America, and Canada. Larry selected northwest Washington State for Anvil’s headquarters because its location had easy access to several area refineries.
The ARCO Cherry Point Refinery was one of Anvil’s first major clients. Anvil’s focus was refinery work, but we also served local commercial and industrial clients. Anvil continued to broaden its work base and was eventually working in all 4 local refineries: ARCO, Mobil, Texaco, and Shell.
