Darex is a privately owned manufacturing company. Our brands include Darex industrial bit sharpeners, Drill Doctor professional and DIY drill bit sharpeners, and Work Sharp knife and tool sharpeners

Darex began in 1973 in Beecher, Illinois. The D, A and R of DAREX are the initials of three generations of the Bernard family; David, Arthur and Richard Bernard. David and his father Richard founded Darex. Grandfather Arthur Bernard, who earlier founded the Bernard Welding Company, contributed his energy and guidance to Darex. In 1978, Darex relocated to Ashland, Oregon where we are located today. In 2012, Matthew Bernard became the fourth generation family owner of the company.

Darex exists to surprise and delight the customers who buy and use our products. With every opportunity we want to positively impact the experience our customers have with us. 

Retailers who carry our consumer brands include Cabela’s, Bass Pro, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Sears, Home Depot, Lowes, True Value, Ace Hardware, and Amazon.com.

We are repeatedly voted one of the top businesses in Southern Oregon to work for. We believe this is due to our focus being not only on the products we make and sell, but also on our culture and the people we hire to be part of our team.
