in the beauty of simple
things made well.
We are a family-owned hand tool company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We work hard, think precisely, and question convention to provide you the hand tools we would want to use ourselves.
Our tools support professional and personal work at the highest levels of skill. A Tekton tool stands apart for its classic design and refined function. We are intentional about every material choice and feature; we believe simpler is generally better and less is often more.
Our core product categories include systems of hand drive sockets and ratchets, impact sockets, wrenches, screwdrivers, and pliers. We also offer organization products ranging from small, tool-specific holders to large cabinets.
The word “Tekton” is from the ancient Greek language. It is similar to the word “technician” and shares its origin with words like “technical” and “technique.” A Tekton is a person of skill, particularly with the hands.
Complete and Organized Systems
We have a single line of tools arranged logically by size and type. We assemble sets out of our individual components to maintain consistency, and we avoid skipping sizes, even rare ones that are at the outer limits of proper use. As a result, Tekton is an orderly tool system you can invest in.
Growing U.S. Manufacturing
In our facilities, we cut, engrave, and polish steel, mold plastic, and carry out a range of finishing and assembly operations. We are an industry leader in using agile manufacturing methods that support fast engineering improvements.
We also work with carefully selected outside partners in the U.S. and in other countries. When we say that a tool is made in the United States, we mean both that the materials are U.S.-made and that the manufacturing takes place in the U.S.
About 74% of our current product lineup is made in Taiwan, 22.5% in the United States, 2% in Canada, and 1.5% across several other countries. You can find the country of origin for every tool on Tekton.com by referring to the “Specs” section at the bottom of each product page.
Exceptional Customer Service
We have a helpful, incredibly fast, Grand Rapids-based support staff and typically ship out Tekton.com orders the same day you place them.
We also sell through Authorized Resellers so you can purchase Tekton tools in ways that work best for you.
