FMC made them in their own building, they had a model division when they went for contracts. These were not mass produced these are maybe 1-5 each maybe less.

from wiki:

 

It was designed by the BorgWarner company and built by FMC (Food Machinery Corporation) along with a few other companies. It was first accepted into service in 1956. Some 1,124 basic units were produced, plus the specialist variants, and many saw action in the Vietnam War.
