Peavey is a Maine-Based Family Business
Invented the tool that bears his name and revolutionized the logging industry. Shown hear in 1858 as a young man leaning on a hookless "handspike". The Peavey's retained control until 1944 when David Howard Peavey died. Walter Willey carried on.
Lee, Raymond & Dean's father, acquired a steel foundry in Oakland, ME and a Sawmill & Woodworking shop in Madison, ME after WWII. In 1954 Peavey MFG (under leadership from Walter Willey) and the Maine Woods Tool Compnay (MWTC) merged and kept the Peavey Mfg Co. name. Lee took the helm.
After the Peavey fire of 1966 Ray & Dean Delano salvaged equipment from Madison, ME, and relocated Peavey Mfg Co. to a former chicken house on Route 9 in Eddington, ME. This is the present day home for Peavey - just 5 miles downstream from where Joseph started.
In 1978, after having hauled wood to his uncle Dean's company as an independent trucker, Rodney Buswell Sr. came to work at Peavey. When Dean retired in 1982 Ray & Rodney Buswell assumed control. Ray then retired passing the reigns to Rodney.
