COMPANY HISTORY

The Sawyer Paddle & Oar Company was founded in 1967 by Ralph Sawyer in Rogue River, Oregon. A prodigious marathon canoe competitor, Sawyer founded the company on the premise that the best way to make paddles is to stay within the guidelines of offering a well designed, well priced, high quality paddle that is incredibly durable. Utilizing thin laminated woods reinforced with layered fiberglass and resins, Sawyers paddle designs quickly became legendary recognized for their incredible strength, natural beauty and superior lightness. The developing local white water rafting and dory/driftboat trade prompted Sawyer to add his expertise to the design of a better white water oar. The Sawyer original Laminated Douglas Fir S/P Oar was introduced to meet the particularly rough demands of the sport. Sawyer oars quickly gained popularity for their light weight and ability to withstand the tough conditions unique to white water use.

Twenty years from its founding, 1987 brought Sawyer Paddles & Oars a new helmsman; Bruce Bergstrom. An experienced rafter and kayaker, Bergstrom added new ideas to the solid legacy left by Ralph Sawyer. Expanding the line and reaching new customers with new models and designs, Bruce soon found the company outgrowing its roots on the banks of the Rogue River. In 1991 Sawyer Paddles & Oars moved to its current larger and better equipped facility. We're still in the Rogue River Valley, just off Interstate 5 in Talent, Oregon at the base of the beautiful Siskiyou mountain range.

In 1991 Sawyer Paddles & Oars also acquired Smoker Oar & Paddle Co.; a nearly 100 year old paddle and oar manufacturer. who specialized in solid Northern White Ash Oars. White ash, historically, is the material desired by experienced oarsmen, for its strength and flexibility. Since then, Bergstrom has added to the line with new lightweight materials like fiberglass and graphite composites, which increase the value through weight reduction and strength. The MX-Series of premium composite oars have shown themselves to be the best available, as proven by the thousands currently in use by recreational and commercial boatmen world wide.

Sawyer Paddles & Oars manufacturers and distributes, primarily to retailers and manufacturers, a broad line of products which includes wood and wood composite paddles for: Canoes, Kayaks, White water Rafts, Outrigger Canoes and General Boating. The line of Oars consists of wood and composite oars for: white water rafts, driftboats, dory oars, lifeboat oars, recreational sculling and general boating. To accent the core line Sawyers also carries a full line of paddle and oar accessories.
