The history of Snap-on Industrial starts with the pioneering idea of interchangeable sockets and wrench handles. Joseph Johnson together with William Seidemann, formed the Snap-on Wrench Company in 1920. The company manufactured and marketed ten sockets that would “snap on” to five interchangeable handles, a concept that revolutionized the tool industry. Snap-on has continued its innovative leadership across an ever-expanding line of products to this day. Our Industrial division has been at the forefront of a number of developing technologies, such as Flank Drive®, Level 5™Tool Control Systems, and Mobile Tool Solutions.
