In March of 1945, Vernon Lester Carr started V.L. Carr & Son Pattern Co. in an old metal shop behind his house in Los Angeles. His son, Wendell Whittaker Carr, joined him later that year at the end of World War II after his return from serving as a patternmaker in the Navy. 

Today, CARR is a third-generation, family owned, American-made manufacturer headquartered in Southern California.
