 What’s in a name…..?

Carlsen represents the rich history of 3 generations.  Carl C Larsen, who immigrated from Norway in 1905 was the founder of Larsen & Shaw Limited in 1919.  His son, Carl J, succeeded him in the 1940’s.   Carl J’s son, John Larsen, is the current owner and steward of the company.    ‘Sen’ in Norwegian means ‘son’….therefore Carl’s son, John. Sen also represents Larsen.

The symbol is from the Viking language, Rune Binding, and represents ‘Peace, Happiness, Hope and Earlier Efforts Realized’.
