On the Thursday, May 20th broadcast at 3PM Pacific and 6PM Eastern, Jay Whaley chats with Peter Murphy, owner of Euro Tool, Inc., a major importer of precision hand tools, equipment, & supplies to the jewelry, watchmaking, lapidary, bead stringing, hobby, electronics, and beauty trades. We distribute worldwide via our network of authorized distributors.
The present day EURO TOOL originated with Herman Kirkpatrick representing Albert Froidevaux and Sons of Switzerland in the North American market in 1978.
In 1990 we took a big step and built our own warehouse/office facility. We had our grand opening on October 6, 1990. At that time we wondered how we were going to fill such a “large” warehouse.
In 1994 the company, land and building were purchased from the Swiss partners and the trade name of EURO TOOL became the company’s name: EURO TOOL, Inc. As of 1998 the registered trade names of ToolSmart and BeadSmart are used in the fine jewelry trade and bead trade respectively.
