A Legacy of Cutting-Edge Innovations

Celebrating 75 Years of Pioneering Spirit

Anniversaries are a time for reflection. And having reached our 75th anniversary, we at Oregon Tool find ourselves looking back on the events and innovations that shaped our history and made us theCrew™ we are today. The products, the people, the places… a lot has happened over the past seven and a half decades. But one thing that ties it all together, and that’s kept us together through each and every challenge, is our adherence to our core values, instilled in us from the beginning.

Making a positive impact on people, communities, and landscapes

For over 75 years, we’ve lived our core value of Global Stewardship, devoted to making a positive impact on people, communities, and landscapes around the world. Through Training, Recovery, Environment, and Education, we can serve a higher purpose than the products we make and promote our land and its people.

T.R.E.E. Initiative

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
