John Boos Story

Founded in 1887 by Conrad Boos Sr. in Effingham, Illinois, and named for his son John, Boos & Co. began as a company that manufactured wood blocks for blacksmiths. When a visiting butcher saw Boos' wooden block, he realized it could prove useful at meat market for chopping cuts of meat without damaging his knives or other work surfaces. Plus, the thick slab of hardwood naturally absorbed the shock of the butcher's knives in the same way it had the blacksmiths' hammers.
