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 our tools in the USA.  In addition, all of our distribution and customer service is handled by employees here in the country where this company was born. And that’s just the way it’s going to stay.

Distribution. Service. Pride.

Today, more than 1,200 employees work in 10 facilities in the U.S. to hand forge, assemble, package, and distribute AMES tools for customers in all 50 states.  All calls and service requests are handled by our staff in our Pennsylvania headquarters, too.  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.
