The LINK-BELT brand is turning 150 this year and LBX Company is celebrating all year.

The idea...

In 1874, William Dana Ewart – a farm implement dealer, proposed that a drive chain could be constructed of several detachable links thus creating the “Link-Belt” brand. When wear and tear caused one piece or link to break, the defective section of the chain could easily be replaced right in the field, thus eliminating costly downtime for the farmers. 150 years later, the reputation for providing solutions to real workplace problems is still thriving.
