The Danaher Tool Group, known for their Allen and Armstrong tool lines, has been working to restructure several of their brands. After some rearranging, there is now a clearly defined purpose/goal for each of their tool lines.
Their value line is now the Allen line of tools. Allen is typically known for their hex keys but they also offer some really nice quality hand tool sets.
Tools found under the Allen name include multiple tool sets, sockets/ratchets, wrenches, screwdrivers/nut drivers and pliers/snips.
Allen tools are designed for tradesmen such as mechanical contractors, framers, electricians and road construction workers. Basically any one who needs a high quality tool at a low price can benefit from owning Allen tools.
GearWrench (which we don’t carry) is Danaher’s middle-of -the-line tools designed for their productivity.
Lastly, Armstrong remains Danaher’s top-of-the-line tool brand. These tools are designed for strength and for use in heavy industrial applications including refineries, steel construction, MRO and more. Armstrong offers tools in a variety of categories including:
- Multiple tool sets
- Tool storage
- Impact sockets
- Ratcheting wrenches
- Screwdrivers/nut drivers
- Striking tools
- Torque tools
- Work holding tools
- Cutting tools
- Auto specialty tools
In addition to top-of-the-line quality, Armstrong tools are also offered in larger sizes i.e. 2.5” drive impact sockets, wrenches up to 2.75”, structural wrenches up to 2” and 1” drive torque wrenches.
