The Back Story

Founded more than 100 years ago, the Cleco® brand is synonymous with precision fastening on today’s modern, high-repetition assembly lines. Its wide range of products includes pneumatic and electronic fastening systems, and torque control software solutions.  Customers in the aerospace, vehicle assembly and industrial sectors rely on Cleco® to develop customized tools that overcome even the most complicated application requirements. Cleco® always thinks big and traces its roots back to the Lone Star state (Texas, USA), where its first products thrived in the harshest environments along the gulf coast, including foundries, oil companies, shipbuilders, and petrochemical plants.  The first patents used on Cleco® tools were issued in the 1800s!

Designed to exceed the most stringent requirements of the aerospace industry, Cleco® assembly products have long been the standard-bearer for accuracy, durability, and productivity.

Game Changers

Cleco® revolutionized the category with the introduction of LiveWire™, the world’s first cordless tools for safety in critical fastening. One line controller manages up to 10 cordless tools, creating the most cost-effective solution available in the marketplace. Built-in intelligence provides users with superior torque and angle control features in a lightweight design. This capability also maintains direct communications with plant networks and provides local data storage, troubleshooting and programmability. Once thought to be impossible, the creation of cordless tools for safety-critical fastening forever changed the perception of the industry.  Cleco® is one of the only pneumatic fastening brands to meet and exceed aerospace and motor vehicle assembly requirements.

More recently, Cleco® introduced its 19 Series screwdrivers with a new Clecomatic® clutch that delivers unparalleled, repeatable accuracy for the most demanding applications. These power screwdrivers are designed to be the most accurate, longest lasting and user friendly on the market.
