California Saw & Knife Works is pleased to announce a new and deepened collaboration with Dan Lines and Roseburg Saw & Tool Company. On April 30, 2016, Cal Saw’s San Francisco manufacturing operations were purchased by California Saw & Knife Works, LLC, a new Oregon-based company under the ownership of Dan Lines.
Cal Saw and Roseburg Saw & Tool are both family-owned companies which have a historical commitment to design, quality, and customer service and support. With the new Cal Saw LLC in Oregon under Dan’s leadership, and with the continued collaboration and involvement of Warren Bird and the Bird family, these traditions will be enhanced and will carry Cal Saw’s specialty saws for wood products and knives for food processing and other applications well into the future.
Cal Saw will be moving to a spacious remodeled facility in Sutherlin, Oregon over the course of the next few months, and we are working diligently to assure a smooth transition for our customers. Roseburg Saw & Tool Company will also relocate to the new Sutherlin facility.
Cal Saw’s operations under its new ownership will incorporate and expand on Cal Saw’s 130 years of expertise in the design and manufacture of thin circular saws and specialized machine knives. Combined with Roseburg Saw & Tool, Cal Saw’s design and manufacturing capability, its commitment to assessing its customers’ processes and improving them, and its follow up of the results, will be continued and enhanced. Roseburg Saw & Tool will finish circular saws as it has been doing for Cal Saw customers – in addition to building Roseburg Saw & Tool’s other product lines.
Warren will continue to serve Cal Saw’s customers, bringing to them his years of experience in saw and knife design. Dan and his staff have extensive experience in sawfiling, in making sawfilers’ tools, in finishing circular saws, and in manufacturing and servicing brazed tooling for both solid and laminated wood products; this expertise is combined with a commitment and dedication, like Cal Saw’s, to improving the reliability of customers’ processes and providing them with quality products. This new phase for Cal Saw promises a strong future for both Cal Saw and for its customers.
