In 1944 Claude C. Poulan devised a way to overcome the shortcomings of the conventional chain saw. The Monroe, Louisiana native revolutionized the forestry industry just in time for the booming post-war demands for more wood and wood products, it was the beginning of an industrial giant. Mr. Poulan, whose Poulan chain saw has become a household word in the power-tool industry, built and sold his first chain saw in Marshall, Texas. In the late 70's the Poulan company merged with Weed Eater, Inc., and was later acquired by Electrolux. As of June 2006, the former Outdoor Products operations of Electrolux were divested as a separate company, Husqvarna AB. Husqvarna AB is the parent company in the Husqvarna Group, covering outdoor brands such as Husqvarna, Jonsered, McCulloch, Partner, Poulan and Weed Eater, as well as construction equipment brands like Diamand Boart and Partner Industrial.
