Disston™ Company Celebrates 175th Anniversary as a Global Manufacturer of Power Tool Accessory Products
Disston Company is proud of its heritage. We take seriously the quality and integrity of every product we manufacture. From the smallest insert bit to the largest hole saw, we stand behind every one of them, regardless of whether it’s made in our wholly owned factory in Chicopee, MA or multiple factories in China.”
Disston™ Company, the global manufacturer of a wide range of power tool accessory products for DIY, contractor and industrial markets, has announced today that April 2015 marks the company’s 175th anniversary.
175 years ago, founder Henry Disston set out with a vision and became the first domestic manufacturer of handsaws in the country with Disston Saw Works. He knew that to compete with the then superior English tools, he would need to make the best saw the world had ever known. That was 1840. With superior manufacturing, a vision for innovation and an earnestness of spirit, Henry Disston created saws made to usher in a new industrial age.
Over the course of the next 175 years, Disston Company made this vision into a reality and pioneered many new product innovations, evolving into a global manufacturer of hole saws, band saw blades, jigsaw blades, reciprocating saw blades, drill bits and other hand and power tool related accessories for the DIY, contractor and industrial markets. Their domestic operation is housed in a state-of-the-art production facility in Chicopee, MA. The company also operates fabrication and production enterprises in China. Disston’s international manufacturing and distribution capabilities combined with its history and tradition as a brand leader in the tool category for 175 years provide its customers with the optimum blend of value, performance and integrity.
“Disston Company is proud of its heritage” announced Mark Marzeotti, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Disston. “We take seriously the quality and integrity of every product we manufacture. From the smallest insert bit to the largest hole saw, we stand behind every one of them, regardless of whether it’s made in our wholly owned factory in Chicopee, MA or multiple factories in China.”
To this day, the heritage built over the last 175 years is still found in every cutting tool the company provides. Each power tool accessory – from hole saw to jigsaw, reciprocating and bandsaw blade to drill bit – embodies the rich history and tradition built into the Disston name.
Disston will be unveiling the new 175th year logo and discussing the company’s long history of innovation at the upcoming National Hardware Show® in May at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Disston Company markets a wide range of products under brand names that include Blu-Mol®, Blu-Mol Xtreme®, RemGrit®, Aggressor® and Capewell®.
