Our Story

Travers Tool Company started from humble beginnings in 1924, having begun as a leap of faith from the trunk of our current CEO’s great grandfather’s car. Today, we’re a leading metalworking tool and industrial supply distributor, with locations in New York, South Carolina, and California. Our goal is to achieve the highest service levels in the industry, and that requires outstanding commitment, as well as a shared passion for our customers and their complete satisfaction. With our centennial anniversary fast-approaching, our dedication remains with the people and the industries we faithfully serve, and to our employees who make us proud to be a classic American success story.
