Klein Tools brought its U.S.-made products to the White House as part of its “Made in America Product Showcase,” which features American-made products from 50 companies representing their home states. Klein Tools was invited by President Donald J. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, members of the Administration and White House staff to represent Illinois at this year’s event due to the company’s ongoing commitment to manufacturing tools and supporting jobs in the United States.
“We’re honored to be invited to the White House’s ‘Made in America Product Showcase’ and to represent the great state of Illinois,” said Tom Klein, Sr., chairman of Klein Tools. “My great-great-grandfather founded Klein Tools in Chicago over 160 years ago, and we continue his legacy of manufacturing tools right here in the United States. In fact, no other manufacturer of hand tools used in electrical applications makes more items in America than Klein Tools.”
Klein Tools designs, develops and manufactures professional-grade hand tools used in the construction, electrical, utility and mining industries. Klein Tools has eight facilities in six states, including its corporate office and forging facility in suburban Chicago, and its manufacturing headquarters in Mansfield, Texas.
“Over the past seven years, Klein Tools has invested over $200 million in our U.S. manufacturing facilities,” Klein said. “Providing American-made products not only supports our corporate values, it also allows us to maintain the quality that the professionals who use them every day rely on. That’s why we try to keep our manufacturing as close to home as possible, while delivering only the highest-quality products.”
