American Manufacturing

An American Legacy Still Going Strong.

You’d think one of America’s oldest brands might care a thing or two about doing things right here in America, now wouldn’t you? And you’d be right. Although we’ve become a global company since our humble beginnings back in 1774, we are committed to manufacturing and distributing our tools in the USA.

Distribution. Service. Pride.

Today, more than 1,200 employees work in facilities in the U.S. to hand forge, assemble, package, and distribute AMES tools for customers in all 50 states. We’re proud to make AMES tools, and we like talking to the folks who use them.


As a global company, we do buy some components and materials from valued global supply partners from around the world.  Our international strategic partnerships and far-reaching facilities allow us to share our amazing tools well beyond our borders, while we continue to design, engineer, and make products right here in the U.S.
