J.K. Adams: Over 65 Years of New England Yankee Craftsmanship
Some of the world's finest woodworkers can be found in New England. The rich heritage and folk lore of the great Yankee Woodworker is as well known today as it was hundreds of years ago, and the craft has been handed down through the generations. J.K. Adams success is certainly attributable to the early Vermonters employed by the company while in its infancy who brought forth the techniques and quality craftsmanship that could only come from generations of shared knowledge and experience. The J.K. Adams factory has been at the same location since the beginning. As many as three generations of families have relied on J.K. Adams to provide for their families. Located in a rural area of Vermont, J.K. Adams remains one of the largest employers in the area and is an important pillar of support for our local community. J.K. Adams has always used the creativity and skill of their workforce in developing new products, and today J.K. Adams continues its New England craftsmanship with a wide variety of cutting boards as well as wooden salad bowls, kitchen islands, and slate serving trays. And at the J.K. Adams factory, you'll find future generations of woodworkers building upon the traditions begun over 65 years ago. Cutting boards and other products made by J.K Adams are manufactured in the USA.
J.K. Adams' Company History
Founded by Josiah K. Adams in 1944 over 65 years ago in a small garage in Dorset, Vermont. The Cooper family purchased the business from founder Adams in 1949. We began our production with Speedy Racer toy, and then followed by manufacturing drafting and surveying tables, Kiwi shoe groomers, gifts, and furniture. Today, J.K. Adams is the leading supplier of wooden storage and food preparation products for the specialty housewares industry.
About J.K. Adams' Logo
In colonial New England, three strokes of a broad ax were used to mark the finest trees in the forest for the Queens' Navy ship masts. The broad arrow was adopted as our logo because it symbolizes the exceptional quality of wood that goes into our products.
