In the 1800s farming industry had not evolved much, farmers used different types of hard methods to maintain the quality of crops that also needed more human resources. Due to this, three people in 1836 decided to make a company for facilitating and making the work easier for farmers. The brand got its name Campbell Hausfeld from its founders James Campbell, William Campbell, & Joseph Hausfeld. Joseph had a company that was making good quality air compressors and his company made the most famous air compressor named Pressure King of their time.
When Joseph acquired the Campbell brand, his company also started making other power tools. Seeing its business potential, a company named Scott Fetzer purchased it in 1971. They also made quality tools and maintained the interest of consumers in the brand. Fetzer owned this brand for 44 years and in 2015 the Marmon Group purchased it. Now, Marmon group is manufacturing all the Cambell Hausfeld brand air compressors in Leitchfield, United States.
