We began manufacturing metal cutting snips and related hand tools in Sturgis, Michigan in 1945. Today, we continue to be a privately held Michigan corporation with operations in Sturgis, MI; Kalkaska, MI; and Caledonia, OH.

In the beginning, we operated as the highest quality private label manufacturer of edge hand tools for many leading professional quality brands. Today, our Midwest Snips® national brand has become a leading tradesman brand both domestically and in many regions globally. We design and manufacture all models of our aviation and tinner snips in our USA facilities.
