Established in 2007 by Jake Peterson, son of sawmill Carl Peterson. Carl developed his first prototype swing blade sawmill in the 1970's and set about creating the world's first commercial swing-blade sawmill in the 1980's. Carl's swing-blade sawmill was launched to great acclaim and within only a few years, over one thousand mills were manufactured and sold worldwide.
In 2007 - with Carl's help and support - Jake Peterson launched Turbosawmill. Father and son worked together to design and build Carl's inverted 'T' concept to offer a very clean, open access portable sawmill which is considered to be the best portable sawmill on the market!
