Did you know that ICS Diamond Tools & Equipment will soon be operating under the Oregon Tool Family name? That’s right! All of the ICS concrete tools and equipment you know and love will be marketed as Oregon. But don’t worry too much, it’s just the name that is changing!

When the ICS brand first launched in 1991, they pioneered diamond saw chain technology with their unwavering desire to deliver products that are safer and more productive for the everyday user. Parent company, Oregon Saw Chain Corp., was founded in 1947 and later launched the ICS brand specifically to concentrate on developing specialized chainsaw applications. After doing so, the world’s #1 saw chain steadily changed an entire industry, making concrete cutting with a chainsaw an impressive feat even in 2022. Now over 30 years later, ICS is embracing their heritage with Oregon professional grade tools and rebranding as part of an overarching effort to unite all brands operating under the Oregon Tool umbrella. This change will be rolling out over the next 6 months to slowly integrate the two brands together.

“Because Oregon is the undisputed leader in the global bar and saw chain market, we are confident the inspiration and momentum inherent in the name Oregon Tool will help our organization achieve our goals in the years ahead, including aggressive growth across brands and launching into adjacent categories. We will also go beyond serving the professional end user and expand how we’re serving the do-it-yourself consumer.”

— Oregon Tool CEO Paul Tonnesen

The Oregon Tool family has grown over the years into a multinational organization with numerous acquisitions and mergers. Today, Oregon Tool sells thousands of products in more than 110 countries across multiple consumer brands. The company is the world’s #1 manufacturer of saw chain and guide bars for chainsaws and diamond saw chain for concrete and pipe, as well as a leading manufacturer of agricultural tractor attachments, and the leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supplier of first-fit and replacement parts. Since day 1, Oregon Tool has been dedicated to embracing nature (they developed the modern saw chain design after observing how efficiently timber beetle larvae chewed through wood fiber!), and they are pushing to keep that a priority as the company continues to evolve.
