A Classic American Success Story
Nestled in the heart of the White Mountains of Northern New Hampshire, Labonville Inc. was founded in 1953 by Dolores and Emilien Labonville. Coming from a humble background during the Great Depression, they crossed the Canadian border in the late 40's with little money, even less language skills, a bucksaw, and set about building a new life.
As time progressed, they became leading loggers in the north country. They employed 114 men and 55 work horses — a very large operation for those times. The company progressed along with the forest industry from the horse pulling days to today's highly mechanized operations. In the 60's, we were one of the first manufacturers to introduce Safety Clothing to the Forest Industry.
Fast forward to today, we've had some of our products patented in Washington DC and displayed at The National Museum of American History at The Smithsonian Institute. Moreover, along with our Famous Safety Gear, we also manufacture Top-Quality "Work & Sport Gear" for the whole family. We're very proud to continue to keep all our manufacturing operations here in America.
