Barnett Manufacturing began as Barnett Design Works in 1997. Dave Barnett opened the business in his garage and began designing and manufacturing  custom machines and equipment for the wood processing industry.  The capacity of the business grew as Dave added new products and additional manufacturing capabilities, serving an ever widening customer base. He eventually moved out of his garage and into space leased from the Holland Bowl Mill. In 2008, he designed and began manufacturing the PowerDeck, an electric pallet mover.In 2009, Balanced Enterprise Solutions began marketing and business advising for the PowerDeck. Three years later, Barnett Design Works and Balanced Enterprise Solutions merged to form Barnett Manufacturing Co.  Continued growth, more products, and increased opportunities resulted in the move to their current manufacturing space on East Lakewood Blvd.
