Skookum is a Chinook word with many meanings. Strong. Best. Powerful. Brave. Tough. Hardworking. It was the northwest loggers who gave the name to Skookum products for their unfailing dependability and rugged strength.

For the rough and tumble start in 1890, Skookum has remained a leader in the industry with an unwavering commitment to quality strength and innovation for over 120 years.

Skookum has not only been made in the U.S.A. since the beginnings in 1890, it has been a part of American history as well. WE have participated in salvage operations at Pearl Harbor, the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam, and building the BART in San Francisco. Having already been a part of history, Skookum in now a major innovator in metallurgical science. Our promise is to lead the way in the development of advanced steel products with incredible strength and durability to be worthy of the Skookum name.
