Disston™ Company, the global manufacturer of a wide range of power tool accessory products for DIY, contractor and industrial markets, has announced today that April 2015 marks the company’s 175th anniversary.

175 years ago, founder Henry Disston set out with a vision and became the first domestic manufacturer of handsaws in the country with Disston Saw Works. He knew that to compete with the then superior English tools, he would need to make the best saw the world had ever known. That was 1840. With superior manufacturing, a vision for innovation and an earnestness of spirit, Henry Disston created saws made to usher in a new industrial age.
