In 1965 Werner Furrer Sr. designed and hand crafted the very first Werner Paddle.50 years later we are honored to invite all of those who helped us achieve this milestone, family, customers, members of our industry, friends, team and staff to celebrate with us an amazing milestone.

Over the course of the year follow us on our web site (www.wernerpaddles.com) as we feature media surrounding 1965 to 2015, starting with our historic timeline found on our “About” page which chronicles how history forged Ultimate Paddle Performance and our company today.From white water, touring, kayak fishing, stand up paddle and canoe our designs and attention to detail have given thousands confidence and enjoyment on waterways around the globe.

Marketing manager Danny Mongno reflects on the meaning of 50 Years. “We need to look beyond just the achievements on the water.So many families have been raised over the years by hard working people at our facility in Sultan and we’ve given lots back to the paddling community, young paddlers and the environment we rely on.There are also more than a few innovations we’ve come up with that have raised the bar for paddles across the board.This milestone truly means a lot to many.”

Hours from where the initial paddles were built in the family garage we remain family owned and handcrafted in Sultan WA, USA. We look forward to a great 2015.
