SawStop Ships 50,000 Saws
Tualatin, OR - May 1, 2014 -
SawStop, LLC. the leader in table saw safety, today announced the shipment of their 50,000th saw. Founded in Oregon in 1999, each SawStop saw stops the spinning blade on contact with skin. SawStop shipped its first table saw in August, 2004. Since then, SawStop has become the #1 cabinet saw in North America.
“Our rapid growth and continued popularity is largely thanks to our saw owners,” said Vice President of Marketing Matt Howard. “We continue to earn their loyalty and trust by keeping our promises.” Mr. Howard cited SawStop’s stellar reputation for product quality and customer care, coupled with thousands of documented finger saves by the patented SawStop safety system.
“When SawStop debuted nearly ten years ago, we knew this was the right saw line for our customers,” said Andrew Bondi, Woodcraft’s power tool sales manager. “When we sell a SawStop, we provide those woodworkers with the most technologically advanced product on the market AND pound for pound the best table saw that money can buy.”
Today, SawStop management and employees remain dedicated to reducing user risk. Mr. Howard added: “After shipping our 50,000th saw, the epidemic of table saw injuries on unsafe saws persists. Our mission hasn’t changed.”
SawStop is the leader in table saw safety. SawStop saws are available from over 400 resellers in seven countries. The company’s saws are designed to minimize saw-related injuries and the costs associated with them.
