Found some more stuff on poulan

Key Poulan
People often misunderstood the roles of the men involved.. some people in my family as well! Essentially, Claude and Harry had HUGE roles in the company. My grandfather (Harry) is on the left. He was the first president of the Poulan Saw company and the first Vice President of the Poulan Manufacturing Company. My uncle Claude (2nd from the right) invented the bow saw and was the first President of the Poulan Manufacturing Company and the first Vice President of the Poulan Saw Company. Poulan Saw Company = Sales, Poulan Manufacturing company = Design/Manufacturing. I'm pretty sure I know the roels of Ernest Garrett and my uncle Fletcher but I need to check with my father to make sure.


From my father: Uncle Fletcher would be called the shop superintendent today. He was also the inventory control specialist. He would look at a parts bin and when the items were getting low, he would cause a production run. Mr. Garrett was the chief designer. Originally, he would make the manufacturing drawings and parts lists. As a group they would decide where to buy stock parts to be incorporated into the design. Later Mr Howard Hill took over some of the every day duties.
