History of Irwin

Founded in Martinsville, Ohio in 1885, Charles Irwin purchased the rights to the solid centre auger bit from a local blacksmith, and this is where the Irwin Tools story began. 40 years later the Vise-Grip was invented by William Petersen and this is where two tool leaders joined forces to become one tool giant. In 1993, American Tool Companies (formerly Petersen Manufacturing) acquired Irwin Tool Company. Fast forward to today and Irwin Industrial Tool Company as it’s now known is a global company with unrivalled success and a vast array of highly acclaimed products under their tool belt!
