    Innovating for over a Century: Bixby's Dedication to Progress

    Exploring the remarkable journey of Bixby International, a company that has thrived on innovation and dedicated employees for 150 years.

    Bixby International has a rich history dating back to 1874. The story begins with two Bixby brothers, William and George, in Haverhill, Massachusetts where they decided to start their new business venture. Bixby’s first steps were taken as a manufacturer of shoe components, mainly box toes and heel counters. Over the years, Bixby has evolved and diversified its product offerings while staying true to its commitment to quality and innovation.

    Through strategic decisions and a forward-thinking approach, Bixby has transformed from its humble beginnings into a global leader in the industry, setting the standard for excellence.

    Innovation has been at the core of Bixby's success story. The company's ability to adapt to changing times and embrace new technologies has been instrumental in its longevity. By continuously pushing the boundaries of what is possible, Bixby has maintained its competitive edge and continued to deliver cutting-edge solutions to its customers.

    With 150 years of history behind it, Bixby's longevity is a testament to its ability to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing market. By pivoting when necessary and leveraging its technological capabilities, Bixby has remained relevant and resilient throughout the years, standing the test of time.

    Despite its growth and global reach, Bixby International has kept its family-oriented values alive. The Bixby family's continued involvement in the company reflects a strong sense of tradition and commitment to upholding the principles on which the company was founded. This legacy has helped shape Bixby's culture and fostered a sense of unity and purpose among its employees.

    At the heart of Bixby International's success lies its people. The company's culture of excellence, driven by dedicated employees who are passionate about their work, has been a driving force behind its achievements. By fostering a collaborative and supportive environment, Bixby has created a workplace where innovation thrives, and great ideas are born.
