GRANBERG INTERNATIONAL’S story begins in the forests of the Pacific Northwest when a young WWII veteran and contract logger named Elof Granberg determined that freehand chain saw sharpening was inaccurate, which unnecessarily increased sawing time. Rather than accepting the status quo, he invented the File-n-Joint in 1954. He also invented and introduced to the chain saw accessory market the first 12-volt portable chain saw sharpener; the first adjustable and portable saw chain breaker/mender and the first chain saw hedge trimmer attachment.
In the 1960s, Granberg acquired the rights to a bar-mounted chain saw mill, nicknamed the “Alaskan.” Working under the credo “smarter, not harder,” Elof set about simplifying and streamlining the design. Today, the Alaskan MKIII is the industry standard and is sold all over the world. Over the years, the Mini Mill was added to Granberg’s saw mill line as well as the Small Log Mill.
Today, Granberg is still a family owned business and Elof’s descendents are still managing the business and continuing to improve and update the product line. We strive to continue Elof’s high standards and honor his belief that a product can - and must - be affordable, accurate and well designed.
