HOW THE ICONIC BRAND IS FORGING THE FUTURE OF TOOLS
This is a classic American story about the power of fresh thinking and engineering. About the pride and joy that can only be found in
hard work. About new beginnings. It’s the story of SK Professional Tools.
Seven years ago, the proud tool brand of choice for generations, renowned in race pits and family garages alike, was on the verge
of extinction. That’s when IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., a family-run, blue-collar American company, took charge of SK Professional Tools with a plan to
reignite the iconic brand with fresh new tool designs, breakthrough engineering and American steel forged on American soil.
IDEAL saw the opportunity to bring tool manufacturing back to the idea of serving the techs, challenging SK to return to the
innovative thinking that had the company thriving at its peak. And it’s working.
Not long after, SK launched its SK X-Frame® Ratcheting Wrench, the biggest advancement in engineering for the professional technician
since the first round-headed ratchet invented eighty years ago — by SK, of course. And it was just the beginning.
Today, as part of IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., SK manufactures over 3,000 products and continues in their commitment to providing quality,
American-made innovation to the toughest tradesmen in the world. They are determined to make “Made in America” as much about ingenuity and new ideas as it is about pride. And that’s a story you don’t want to miss.
