History by Tom Hawkins:
There is no connection between the Fleetwood saws produced by Baystate Equipment and the Titan brand saws. However Baystate's Fleetwood model:200 was sold by Smart's in Canada.
Note the model:200 was strickly a bucking saw only, the model:400 was their all position saw, it had a swivel type carburetor for felling purposes.
FMC (Food Machinery Corporation) was the parent company of Bolens.
In 1956 FMC purchased the Fleetwood brand from Baystate Equipment and began making Fleetwood saws in 1957, they were the same as the Bolens saws just different paint.
In 1957 Draper Industries purchased Titan Chain Saw Company, but they only wanted Titan's bar and chain division. Draper then sold Titan's saw division to FMC, also in 1957.
FMC then produced their own saws, making three lines all based around the Titan model:50. FMC made the seven model Bolens brand, the seven model Fleetwood brand, and the eight model Titan brand. But they were the same saws from brand to brand just different paint. FMC did offer a newer version of the Titan model:75, now relabeled as the model:85, but only as a Titan.
It appears that FMC discontinued the Fleet brand around 1959, the Titan's disappeared after 1960 and Bolens chain saw production halted after the 1962 run.

FROM THE BROCKVILLE MUSEUM ASSOCIATION:
James Smart Mfg Co. Ltd.
Canada Foundries and Forgings Ltd
In 1854 James Smart opened his Novelty Works, which was soon followed in 1860 by his foundry, located in the present-day site of Hardy Park. The business was incorporated in 1881 as the James Smart Manufacturing Co. Ltd. The company continued to grow into the 20th century, acquiring property west of Kincaid to house a power house and machine shop. By 1910 the company employed some 400 people. The company specialized in cast iron and cast steel products, and gained a reputation for quality both within Canada and beyond. It produced a wide range of products such as stoves and furnaces, lawnmowers, chainsaws, school desks, hammers, and pots and pans.
Canada Foundries and Forgings acquired the James Smart Manufacturing Co. Ltd. in 1961, but by that time fewer than 100 people were employed. In 1965 the company closed its doors. The land was purchased by Senator A.C. Hardy. The buildings were later demolished and the land given to the city of Brockville as a park.
