Mitchell - Maurice Jacquemin, a Carpano & Pons engineer, was the inventor of the Mitchell reel as
we know it today. His goal was to produce a reel which was not only a container to hold line, but a
tool which would cast the lure at a great distance with precision and recover the line without
tangling. After two years of research, the revolutionary Mitchell 300 was born in 1948. Mr. Pons
named the reel in honor of his brother, Mitchel. A marked departure from the reels of its day in
mechanics and appearance, the Mitchell 300 was the beginning of a chain reaction that rapidly
propelled the company to international renown. In 1965, upon the death of Mr. Pons, Mitchell and
other Carpono & Pons divisions became separate companies. The future was bright as production
reached 12,000 reels per day in 1970. Unfortunately, the oil crisis and strong international
competition in the late 1970s forced Mitchell to declare bankruptcy in 1981
Large ReelPhilippe Blime took over Mitchell in 1982 with plans to revitalize the business. He
strived to turn the company around using the Mitchell brand''s prestige and tradition of quality. His
restructuring strategy was to rejuvenate the product line, reduce costs, increase distribution, and
innovate throughout, while at the same time respecting the tradition. In 1983-1984 stiff international
competition forced Mitchell to subcontract the manufacture of its products to the Pacific Rim.
Although Mitchell reels were no longer produced in France, French engineers still maintained
control of the products'' concept and design.
