We Know How to Build a Sawhorse
Jim Frey started building and distributing Burro Brand sawhorses over 45 years ago. He didn't have a manufacturing plant or a top level crew of employees yet – just a desire to build a genuine American product with integrity, quality and craftsmanship. By 1978, with occasional help from family and friends, Jim grew Burro Brand into a well-respected local company that saw Burros being sold in over 20 lumber yards throughout the San Diego, CA area. But that was only the beginning! Within 10 years Burro Brand sawhorses became available in national Home Improvement Centers across the west.
Fast forward to today - Burro Brand has expanded into two American manufacturing plants that service the entire USA and abroad, all while taking pride in remaining the small family business that Burro Brand still is today.
