The company has a long history of positive customer service, industry/tool knowledge with its experienced staff and the reputation of having inventory available when the customer needs it. With new ownership and the implementation of an enhanced marketing strategy and tactics, including website upgrade, hiring an outside sales person, opening on Saturdays and with extended hours during the week, the business can continue to grow and serve the needs of local tradesman, business owners and individuals who need just the right tool for the job.


"Buying power” is the company’s strength in this market. The company is able to purchase products at a lower cost than most of its local competitors. This provides a significant barrier to entry for others. Also, the company is an authorized warranty service center for major brands like Hitachi, Milwaukee, DeWalt, SKTools, Proto Tools, Channellock, Vise Grip, Powermatic, Jet, Metaboe, Makita, and all other major brands. The company carries the largest selection of USA and German-made tools in the state. Customers visit the store and many times decide to “trade in” their old/non-working tool or equipment and purchase new from the company. The company has a long-standing positive reputation in the market as the “go-to” place for hard to find tools and equipment.
