Klein Tools Acquires Ergodyne in St. Paul, Minnesota

Klein Tools, Inc. and Tenacious Holdings, Inc. (the parent company of Ergodyne, “Ergodyne”) have announced today that Klein Tools has acquired Ergodyne. Ergodyne will be operated as a separate business unit in St. Paul, Minnesota, at its current headquarters. Tom Votel will remain President and continue to lead the Ergodyne team.

Klein Tools, a sixth-generation, family-owned company that was founded in 1857, is an iconic American brand and business. For over 161 years Klein Tools has remained dedicated to manufacturing professional grade tools and related equipment for tradespeople worldwide.

Ergodyne, founded in 1983, has spent the last three decades pioneering the development of products that Make the Workplace A Betterplace™. What started with one product has grown into a line of top-flight, battle-tested Tenacious Work Gear®. Today, Ergodyne has established itself as the leading innovator in the safety products space.

“Ergodyne and Klein Tools have much in common, including our commitment to innovation, safety, our customers and our reputations for producing high-quality products,” says Tom Klein Jr., Co-President of Klein Tools. “We believe that our combined resources and expertise will enable us to grow more quickly together than we could have separately. We’re excited to welcome Ergodyne to the Klein Tools team.”

Together, Klein and Ergodyne plan to expand their venerable brands and leverage their combined expertise, years of experience and industry know-how to accelerate innovation in the safety products space.

“We couldn’t be more excited to join the Klein brand and family,” says Tom Votel, President of Ergodyne. “Our company has seen tremendous success over the last three decades within the safety space, and we can’t wait to propel that forward with this historic partnership.”
