  9. 9. NOW AND THEN EXTRA MATERIAL 1. READ THE TEXT: A Company´s History One day in 1946, Joseph Buford Cox was chopping firewood when he paused for a moment to examine curious activity in a tree. A timber-beetle larva, the size of a man’s finger, was easily chewing its way through timber. Joe was an experienced operator of the gas-powered saws used in those days, but the cutting chain was a problem. It required a lot of maintenance time. “I spent several months looking for nature’s answer to the problem,” Joe remembered. “I found it in the larva of the timber beetle.” Like many other small companies, Oregon Saw Chain began as a small operation in Joe Cox’s home. In the years that followed, Joe expanded his saw chain business and hired several employees. Among these employees was John Gray, who bought the company in 1953 and led it through a period of expansion. In 1957, the company was renamed Omark Industries. In 1985, Omark Industries was bought by Blount, Inc., which at the time was a construction company headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama. Its founder was Winton M. (Red) Blount, who started his career as a construction contractor. Exiting the construction business in 1995, Blount, Inc. was renamed Blount International, Inc. and turned its focus exclusively to manufacturing. Almost overnight, Blount went from a worldwide construction company to a worldwide manufacturing company. Blount has grown its business by developing world-class manufacturing operations and a strong worldwide distribution network. The company expanded its operations through the addition of manufacturing plants in Guelph, Canada (1952); Portland, Oregon (1965); Curitiba, Brazil (1979); and Fuzhou, China (2005).
