Darby Industries is a third-generation, family business that has been designing, manufacturing, and marketing its own product line for five decades. Nestled at the foot of the Endless Mountains along the Susquehanna River, the owners live the lifestyles they serve. Because of this, the Darby name and company mission have long been associated with high-quality and intuitively-designed products that reflect the clever and resourceful spirit of the very customers who use them—customers like you.

A fascinating family heritage with roots in watersports and the invention of windsurfing serves as inspiration and motivation for current owner Tom Darby. To this day, Darby Industries does not go to market with a product it has not invented itself. For more than fifty years, the company has built its fine reputation on the premise of thoughtful innovation, with a straightforward product line that does exactly what it says, and founders who believe in providing you with personalized customer service every step of the way.

Whether you need to transport a canoe down to the boat launch or haul lumber home for a weekend project, Darby products serve as excellent no-hassle solutions for both work and play. Simple, durable, and versatile construction with no assembly required makes for quick and easy installation. And universal application means retailers and dealerships can stock the parts, educate customers, and close the sale on the spot. It also removes all of the guesswork for people like you who are researching a similar product purchase elsewhere. Perhaps most importantly though, is the fact that Darby Industries confidently stands behind these claims with a competitive manufacturer’s warranty.
