The Byer Manufacturing Company was founded in 1880 in Bangor, Maine by a Russian immigrant family as a maker of slippers and textile products. Byer of Maine is today a very different company, sourcing products from far corners of the world. Everyone from their company is proud to come to work in the morning at a company that has survived a remarkable transition and the most challenging financial times of our generation. Different as they are, they remain seriously committed to the text that appears under their name.
