Our History

In 1956, a young forester named Ben Meadows became increasingly frustrated with the difficulties forestry professionals encountered in obtaining field equipment. It was often necessary to go to a variety of sources to find what he needed.

Ben solved the problem by founding a company to supply foresters and engineers with the finest equipment available. His good name was just about the only thing he had back then, so he named the business after himself.

The company Ben Meadows founded still offers the best gear available for natural resource professionals. His slogan, "You can depend on Ben," is as true for the company today as it was in 1956.
