Making Life Easier for Contractors

We specialize in the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of innovative tools for the construction industry.

Our goal is for every contractor to have tools that increase efficiency, quality and safety, and speed construction. Wherever possible we seek solutions that contribute to a better world by reducing construction waste. That’s a tall order. How do we do it?

The Key To Our Success

The spark for a better tool idea, for example the BOLT STAR reusable bolt template, came from seeing the opportunity to re-engineer a wasteful and inefficient construction process, with someone declaring, “There’s got to be a better way!”

True innovation, however, just doesn’t happen with experience alone. Delivering tools that consistently perform for contractors in the field takes focus and hard work. Our patented designs often go through years of development and rigorous testing before being readied for market.

We are proud to offer construction tools that are designed, engineered and manufactured in the USA. That’s a big deal for us. We are dedicated to earning your trust through construction solutions that deliver real on-the-job value, through an evolving dealer network that is second to none.
