About Paladin Attachments

Paladin Attachments is a leading manufacturer and marketer of quality quick couplers and attachments for construction equipment. Paladin was established in 2004 when investors started buying construction manufacturers to make a “one stop” shop that could supply attachments for a variety of machines and applications. Originally there were 4 divisions under the Paladin Brands name: Construction Group, Utility, Demolition & Recycling, Custom Material Handling. In the fall of 2011, Paladin was bought by KPS. The Construction Group was renamed Paladin Attachments. There were 8 different construction equipment manufacturers within Paladin Attachment division covering the light and heavy side of the industry. In 2019, Paladin Attachments was purchased by Stanley Black and Decker. There are still two divisions under the Paladin name (Light and Heavy) with two companies under the light side and 3 under the heavy side. JRB Attachments has been the leading manufacturer within the heavy construction industry.

Paladin Attachments makers of JRB product headquarters are in Akron, Ohio, founded in 1983 as the JRB Company. Over the years, our innovative products have been utilized in the construction, utility, demolition, scrap handling, government, military and other markets that utilize hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders and tractor-loader backhoes. Our years of experience in the construction field working with the end user up to the OEM machine manufactures like John Deere, Komatsu, Case / New Holland, Kawasaki, Doosan have made JRB a standard name throughout the construction coupler and attachment industry.

The engineering department at our Akron facility has kept up with the latest design technology. From the drafting boards in the 1980’s, the Auto Cad 2D software in the 1990’s to the current Solid Works 3D software, JRB has strived to develop the best product for the market with the use of current FEA analysis and field testing, we are looking for a very innovative and productive coming year.
