Humble Beginnings

Bohn and Dawson was founded in a remodeled service station in 1946 by Chet Bohn and Jim Dawson to provide bent and fabricated tubes for some family friends in the baby carriage business. The business grew steadily in the wake of post-war industrial growth in the United States. In the 50’s and 60’s, Bohn and Dawson became a nationally recognized leader as a supplier of tubular components to the growing outdoor power equipment market. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s, growth in the residential and commercial chair and table frame markets propelled Bohn and Dawson to move into and expand the existing headquarters facility. In 1990, Bohn and Dawson produced it’s first automotive component and simultaneously, our engineering, production, operations and quality systems were re-tooled to support high value-added, engineered tubular components.
