History

The company was founded in 1836 and manufactured farm equipment. In 1940 it acquired Joseph Hausfeld's company which was the manufacturer of an air-compressor called Pressure King and was renamed Campbell-Hausfeld.[1] In 1971 Campbell Hausfeld was acquired by Scott Fetzer.[1] Presently the company generates approximately one-third of the profits of the parent company and is running six product lines.[1] The company also manufactures air tools, painting systems, winches, generators, pressure washers and spray guns.[1][2][3]
