The world was a much different place when we first began making ice augers. Back in 1960, our three founders—Art, Dick, and Sam—joined forces to form Eskimo’s parent company, Ardisam, Inc. in Cumberland, WI. They had the goal of making powered ice augers and post hole diggers, and their first ice auger was actually electric—powered by car battery. Over the years as the company grew and found success, we expanded into a wide range of outdoor products offered across various Ardisam brands today, Eskimo being one of them. Those first augers, built over 60 years ago with a spirit of solution-driven innovation, laid the groundwork for who we are and what Eskimo continues to stands for to this day.
