Steve’s favorite thing about working in the tool industry:
In particular, I get to oversee brands that have stood the test of time as well as newer innovations. For example, our Wiss® snips were introduced more than 75 years ago and remain the top cutting tool among sheet metal workers and HVAC pros. Crescent® introduced the very first adjustable wrench — now a ubiquitous tool — more than 100 years ago. I also enjoy being part of the new innovation process and filling a need in the marketplace with a new tool.
