Company Overview


In the late 1940’s we revolutionized the handheld engine industry with the invention of the diaphragm carburetor, enabling small engines to operate in any position. That invention led to the creation of an entirely new market segment in the lawn and garden industry that rapidly grew to include chainsaws, brush cutters, trimmers, pole cutters, and leaf blowers and expanded to the construction market with concrete cutters and cut-off saws. With our worldwide manufacturing capability, we serve customers on every continent. Our four main lines of diaphragm carburetors – HU, HE, HS and HL – cover the full range of engines, from smaller consumer engines to heavy-duty professional engines. Our customer list has included nearly every major brand and in some cases, we license our technology to engine manufacturers who want to do their own manufacturing. Chances are, if you pick up any piece of handheld power equipment, its carburetor either is or is based on one of ours.
