1866 - Current

History

 

The C.H. Hanson company was founded in 1866 by a Denmark immigrant named Christian H. Hanson who emigrated and set up shop outside of Chicago, IL as an engraver and then expanded into industrial supplies and other products.  The business has been family owned since his founding.  Though primarily catering to industrial products, they expanded their product line in the late 1990s or early 2000s to include industrial marking crayons for use in construction.
