The Safewrench® Story

Recently AMPCO SAFETY TOOLS®, the specialist of the non-sparking tools has acquired the activities of SAFEWRENCH®.
These 2 brands are the perfect match to leverage on each other businesses.

First, it is about Safety and about hand-tools. The main users of SAFEWRENCH® are maintenance companies in the petrochemical industry where AMPCO SAFETY TOOLS is also a major player for non-sparking tools.

SAFEWRENCH® is certainly the best innovation on a classic hand tools and it comes now in non-sparking versions.
AMPCO started the production of the first non-sparking, non-magnetic safety tool in 1922 in the USA. Since that time AMPCO reputation remained unbeatable.
