Our Story

B-29 pilot David Sutherland returned home after World War II eager to begin the next chapter of his life. In 1951, he founded David H. Sutherland & Co., Inc. as a one-man operation exporting a variety of North American products, initially to Japan. Working out of a phone booth in a downtown hotel lobby in Portland, Oregon, David would establish the beginnings of the international network the company serves today.

With the post-war aviation boom, David saw an opportunity to serve a growing industry as a global aerospace and high-performance materials supplier, starting with Boeing’s first offset programs at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan. Year by year, as the company’s experience and expertise grew, DH Sutherland focused more and more on the aerospace market. Today, we’re a full-service technical resource and global supplier of time- and temperature-sensitive materials, meeting customer needs from our 20,000-square-foot office/warehouse and through a wide variety of domestic and international manufacturer partnerships. Our Beaverton, Oregon-based team serves domestic customers, as well as companies in Korea, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, and beyond. Some of our relationships span more than 40 years.

As a second- and third-generation family company, our success comes from being your trusted partner in pursuit of excellence. Sutherland customers depend on us to deliver the time- and temperature-sensitive products they need, and to add maximum value to their manufacturing processes.
