The Big Horn Corporation was started by it's founder Karen Cody to fill a void she had noticed in the availability of small woodworking tools and accessories. During the first few years the company operations were contracted out as Karen worked to grow the company and secure her place in the nitch market she had identified.
As Big Horn Corporation grew from a fledgling startup into a small but successful distribution company Karen moved the company from California in the early 1990s. The relocation to a facility which Karen owned in Wyoming not only saved on expenses but also allowed the company to begin using a local sheltered workshop facility to assist with product packaging.
Under Karen's leadership the company added many unique hard to find products which allowed her to secure additional woodworking retailers as long term customers. But, in early 2003 as Karen's health continued to decline she quietly began looking for a buyer for the Big Horn Corporation.
In July 2003 the company was sold to the current owners and a new chapter began for the Big Horn Corporation. At the time the daily management of the company remained virtually unchanged and the transition went largely unnoticed by many of our customers.
Fortunately, the need for unique hard to find products which enabled our success in those early years is still with us today and the Big Horn Corporation is still dedicated to finding those products for you.
