Innovation is the hallmark of IRWIN TOOLS. For more than 100 years, it's been an idea that has permeated the culture of our company, and it continues to drive everything we do. For over a century, innovation has been the hallmark of IRWIN TOOLS Beginning in 1885, with the development of the first IRWIN Auger Bit, and progressing with the introduction of Vise-Grip Locking Tools, SPEEDBOR Flat Bits, MARATHON Saw Blades, and QUICK-GRIP Bar Clamps, IRWIN has been at the forefront of the industry, creating superior tools for the professional tradesman.
From the beginning of our product development process to the performance of these products in your hands, IRWIN is where you train, work, play and buy. This commitment is apparent in everything we do.
Our impressive track record of new product development is born from our passion for understanding the needs of our primary user – the professional tradesman. This dedication to improving products begins in the field, where IRWIN's specialized end user teams visit construction sites. There the IRWIN Impact Team learns first-hand – from the professional – how to improve our products, and how to make the pro's job easier and more productive. This hard-earned knowledge is the foundation for a unique product development process utilized by IRWIN's engineering, marketing, and manufacturing teams to deliver a continuous stream of new products to the marketplace.
