In 1917, Everett and Milton Carpenter formed Foundrymen's Supply Company. The brothers both enlisted in the First World War the following year. In 1919, after their return, the company incorporated and became Carpenter Brothers, Inc.
The two Carpenter brothers maintained their company during the Depression years by selling natural bonded Wisconsin molding sand to area foundries. This was when foundry sand was mined with a pick and hand shoveled into horse drawn carts. Milton Carpenter died in 1942 and his brother, Everett, became President.
The company increased the number of manufacturing companies it represented and expanded its sales territory. Everett's son, John, joined the company in 1963, after working at foundries on the east coast. Upon Bradley Booth's retirement in 1979, John succeeded him as President of Carpenter Brothers, Inc. In 2010 Michael J. Morrison succeeded John as President. John maintained his CEO and Chairman duties. In 2016, Nick M. Gerrits succeeded Michael J. Morrison as President and CEO.
