Ramsey Products Corporation:
100 Years

by SJR Research

From Chapter 2: “As the newly incorporated Ramsey Chain Company opened for business in July 1923, founders Joseph Ramsey and Anthony Farrell knew they had a winning product. Ramsey’s breakthrough innovation to silent chain design had three decided advantages over the old forms of construction: smoother running qualities, greater quietness of operation, and—what is usually most important—a considerably longer service life. The questions now were how to mass manufacture the chain and then how to market and distribute it to compete against well-established competitors successfully.”
