ABOUT US

We're Tekton. This is our story.

 

We’re a family-owned company in Grand Rapids, Michigan with about 85 employees. We’re dedicated to making the best hand tools you’ll ever own, and we start by designing the products that we personally believe in and want to own ourselves.

To meet our users’ needs, we do a lot of things differently than other tool companies. We hire the best engineers and designers and ask them to focus on putting your dollars where it matters—on functional aspects like using the best materials, refining production processes, and maximizing strength and leverage. Our tools are designed to work better and cost less than the competition's because we realize that tools, like many things, don't have to be expensive to work well—they need to be made well to work well.

The coolest part about what we do is something new taking place here in West Michigan, one of the world’s leading manufacturing hubs. All sorts of high-level, cutting edge fabrication methods are found here to meet the needs of the automotive, furniture, and medical device industries at globally competitive costs.

Why, we wondered, don’t we employ the resources right in our backyard to make tools like no one has ever made them? So we did. We built our own specialized local supply chains to roll out products like our Angle Head Wrenches, Screwdrivers, and Nut Drivers—and more are on the way.

Tools, like many things, don’t need to be expensive to work well. They need to be made well to work well.

We dive deeply into rethinking how hand tools are designed and engineered. This means stripping away the conventional ideas and marketing gimmicks that have been rolled into tool making over the years. It also means getting back to what a tool is really supposed to do and making sure it does that without fail.

We pay special attention to things like our processes and materials. We also hand pick partners who are experts in their fields—whether they’re traditionally a part of the tool industry or not. We challenge ourselves and those we work with to increasingly higher standards of rigor, precision, and creativity. And, in the end, we bring you a tool that’s designed and engineered better and more intentionally than anything else out there.
