Inspired by Nature
When Joseph Buford Cox witnessed the sawing motion of a timber beetle burrowing through a piece of wood, he saw something that no one else did and designed a saw chain that revolutionized the industry. Our founder’s ingenuity in finding inspiration from the elements to design a more efficient tool is a big part of who we are, but we’re not going to rest on our laurels. We are going to push our talent, creativity and imagination to continually reimagine and redefine what is possible.Our Story
“I spent several months looking for nature’s answer to the problem. I found it in the larva of the timber beetle.”
— Joseph B. Cox, Founder
