Where there's a Winch - there's a way!!!
Lightweight and Refined Gas Powered Capstan Winches
The Portable Winch Co. offers a line of capstan winches and accessories to satisfy the needs for many pulling environments.  From logging and hunting to industrial applications the capstan winch is a versatile tool to aid in pulling in a safe ergonomic way.  But just not limited to the capstan winch, the Portable Winch Co. has also developed highly refined accessories to compliment the winches.  Proud of its history, the Portable Winch Company has grown to be the market leader through research, developement, quality, and service.
2003 - Portable Winch Co. was founded.  The three owners, Pierre Roy, Christian Pelletier and Timothy Brown met in the forestry industry, and had known each other for years before founding Portable WInch Co. The first portable winch (PCW5000) was designed to help their main customers' needs, the gentlemen forester.
2004 - The company launches the PCW5000 model. It is a technical and commercial success, and the first production year already witnesses the birth of international sales, with the participation in a major forestry fair in Germany and the first order from Vonblon in Austria, who will become the largest European importer.
2008 - is a new era for Portable Winch Co. The company moves from a little office on King St East in Sherbrooke to a modern, brand new building in Sherbrooke's Fleurimont Industrial Park. It provides the right space to carry production and sales activities for its growing clientèle.  The team also expands to incorporate production, sales, marketing and R&D activities under one roof.
2012 - After a long design and testing process, the lightweight winch that hunters have been asking for is now available: the PCW3000 is available at dealers in more than 25 countries.
2013 - In order to sustain the spectacular evolution of its sales, Portable Winch Co. doubles the space of its building. And the marketing efforts continue with the participation in large trade fairs around the world.
2015 - Portable Winch co. expands into new markets the world over and has to become more efficient. The business implements an ERP software to manage the logistics of inventory,  production, orders and shipping.
