Last year, Gray Tools marked its 100th anniversary – no small feat in any industry. Much of that success and longevity is due to the quality of the company’s high-end hand tools, but there’s more to the story than that. As owner and President Gary Nuttall explains, Gray Tools’ exceptional history owes as much to the way it treats its customers as the way it manufactures its tools.
The company was founded in 1912 with a focus on producing hand tools specifically for professional applications, and that remains the company’s emphasis more than a century later. Gray Tools’ customer base consists mainly of professional users with a concentration on heavy industrial use. The company’s product line ranges from hammers and screwdrivers to pry bars and clamps. The largest section of the company’s catalog is devoted to wrenches and sockets of all types and sizes.
