Thanks to the company’s strong diversified foundation and innovative, motivated people, Dutton-Lainson Company has spanned three centuries and is now in a stronger position than at any time in its history. The company was founded in 1886, when William M. Dutton and two friends started a small harness and horse collar shop. This soon grew to become one of the largest horse collar manufacturing plants in the nation.
In 1920, Harry Lainson approached Mr. Dutton with the idea of starting a wholesale house. This move, along with the expansion of the manufacturing division, resulted in a tradition of diversification and growth that has made the Dutton-Lainson Company the vibrant, forward thinking company we see today.
Today, Dutton-Lainson Company is one of the country’s leading manufacturers of quality products for marine, agricultural, industrial, and automotive markets throughout the world. Visit Dutton-Lainson at www.dutton-lainson.com.
