  history  

The original 1942 contract with Ford Motor Company marked the beginning of a large expansion and the eventual spin-off of the Crobb Box Company. Crobb stands for Clement, Richardson, O’Brien and Bucklin, the four founding partners. Although the Bucklins have sold their interest in the company it is still in operation today as a major wholesale lumber company in Ellsworth, Maine.

Charles “Chuck” Bucklin joined the family business after college in 1978. The company had been building homes in Northeast Harbor and Seal Harbor for so many decades that it was said a Bucklin had worked on every single home in those villages. Chuck purchased the company from his grandfather Horace in 1986 and renamed the company to C.E. Bucklin & Sons.

Chuck has over 30 years of experience building Maine cottages, the architectural style so popular in this area. His strict attention to detail and complete obsession with doing the job right have earned him the reputation as a world-class carpenter. Chuck has been interviewed on building shows on HGTV and in building magazines for his outstanding quality work, and is passing on a tradition of excellence to the next generation of Bucklins.
