Caron Compactor Company

Caron Compactor was founded in the late 1960`s when founder Fred Caron developed a self-propelled steel-wheeled soil and landfill compactor which was later sold to Rexworks—the predecessor of Terex. From soil to landfills, Mr. Caron brought his knowledge of the dynamics of compaction to the solid waste disposal industry.

Although Fred Caron passed away in 1980, his legacy lives on as the company grew with his son Jim Caron as the President and CEO, later to be joined by his wife, Judy Caron, as Vice President of Administration.

Caron Compactor is recognized throughout the world as an industry leader due to the introduction of compaction wheels with high-alloy, replaceable “Pin-On” wheel caps. Caron Wheels with Pin-On Teeth are today marketed internationally on a full range of landfill compactors including Al-Jon, Bomag, Caterpillar, Komatsu, and Terex. Other landfill products followed such as the Caron Double Semi-U and Semi-U Trashblades, the Caron Transfer Station Wheel, vital axle and final drive guarding, as well as specialized track shoes for both landfill and transfer station applications.

Caron Compactor distributes solid waste products by way of direct sales, equipment dealers and internationally through company representatives. The company maintains an extensive sales and product support network and enjoys a significant market share of the landfill compactor attachment market.
