For more than 50 years, Carlton® has been known for high-quality forestry products that offer both performance and durability. After working for years as the chief engineer for a major saw chain company, Ray Carlton realized that manufacturing saw chain was not only a profession it was a highly skilled technology. In 1963, Ray decided to pursue his concept by reengineering the manufacturing process. Ray’s new concept not only automated the production but completely changed the assembly sequence to increase the reliability of the cutting edge of the chain. This innovation in saw chain manufacturing quickly established Carlton Company as a quality supplier in the industry.
