Kids are out of school, temperatures are rising and pools and patios are filling up with revelry. It’s summertime and with all the fun the next couple of months bring, it’s also the busiest time of the year for HVACR, roofing, siding and gutter, and auto body repair technicians. Long days in hot conditions are when a lot of us earn our stripes. Having trust and confidence in your hand tools of the trade is a mindset that helps technicians all over the world thrive in the busiest times.
Hand Tools Manufactured with Unparalleled Quality
Malco Products has a nearly 70-year tradition of quality and innovation that has made it an industry leader in making the finest hand tools available. Since founder Mark Keymer first manufactured and marketed a pipe crimper he had invented for installing metal ductwork in heating systems back in 1950, he insisted on quality construction. Malco has insisted on quality construction in its hand tools for HVACR, roofing, siding and gutter, fence, deck and rail and auto body repair tools.
More innovations followed:
- The first hand seamer, or hand brake, featuring compound-leverage handles.
- The time-saving hand notcher, for a V-shaped cut in one motion.
- The hand-operated snap-lock punch.
Just the right tools for crimping, bending, folding or seaming metal. Today, Malco continues the tradition of quality and innovation, and distributes thousands of products from its Annandale, MN headquarters to trade professionals in the U.S. and around the globe.
