Crescent Tools - A Long History of Innovation

Part of the Apex Tool Group, Crescent Tools is one of the oldest and largest hand tool manufacturing companies in the world. Crescent Tools are made in the USA and China. Today other companion brands in the Apex Tool family include famous names such as Allen, Nicholson, HKP, Lufkin and Wiss, servicing the motor vehicle, industrial and aerospace industries.

Starting with the first open-end adjustable Crescent wrench in 1908, Crescent now makes a wide range of tools, including:

clamps, hex keys, pliers, pry bars, ratchets and drive tools, screwdrivers and nut drivers, sockets, hammers, wrenches and torque wrenches, cutters, files and saws.

The current catalogue also includes measuring equipment and Crescent tool sets and socket sets, including a 170 piece tool kit, as well as tool storage equipment.

An early endorsement for Crescent Tools came in 1927 when Charles Lindberg took only "gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water, and a Crescent wrench and pliers" on his famous solo transatlantic flight. Today, Crescent fencing pliers are a popular choice for outback Australia for this very same reliability.

Over the 100 years they have been in existence, Crescent Tools have been responsible for some very entrepreneurial developments in their field. With an emphasis on performance, they refined their original wrench design, still producing arguably the best adjustable wrench on the market. Other breakthroughs include their Code Red line of demolition and renovation products, which includes an indexing pry bar, and their Crescent Connect Clamp System that can clamp just about anything!

Crescent Tools continue their tradition for invention of productivity improvement tools right up to the present day. Their latest innovation is the Pivot Pro pliers that are designed to allow fast, easy cutting of heavy gauge cable and wire.
