Goldblatt Tool Company History since 1885 Goldblatt Tools tradition of quality, innovation and satisfaction started with Henry Goldblatt. Born in 1855, Henry emigrated from Russia with dreams of opening his own business in the expanding American West.
At the age of 29, he founded the H. Goldblatt Tool Company in Kansas City, MO. At the time, this frontier town was driving sales for the young entrepreneur as Henry purchased and sold his products directly to the tradesmen. Always the innovator, Henry sold his products through the mail. Soon after, Goldblatt published a tool catalog promoting their products nationwide.
By the 1920’s, Goldblatt had become the premier design manufacturer and distributor of tool products from coast to coast. Henry loved to work with the end-user by discovering what their needs were and what challenges they faced on the job site. Then he built a high quality product that made their job easier at a fair and honest price.
Quickly the Goldblatt reputation grew. Goldblatt has survived World Wars, the Great Depression, building booms and busts, new technology, new styles, and even new ownership.
Now, more than 125 years later, Goldblatt is experiencing a renewal, a return to the fundamentals that made Goldblatt the premier trade tool for generations. It’s not just a new look but you can see in the product we design, produce, and sell every day!
Today, in over 100 countries around the world, Goldblatt provides high quality trade tools in masonry, concrete, drywall, tile, and paint and even more to come. We do it with a simple idea in mind, to create the highest quality product for the trade professional coupled with a product that is also accessible and affordable for the inspired homeowner/do-it-yourselfer.
Decades ago, every Goldblatt professional tool came with an assurance of quality and a warranty to back it up. With the renewed Goldblatt, we have a renewed assurance of quality in our Professional Performance Guarantee. If the professional tool you buy from us does not deliver professional results, return it of a new one or even receive your money back.
Our quality, satisfaction, and innovation has been synonymous with the Goldblatt brand for over 125 years and that makes Goldblatt the right tool for the job. Welcome to the new level of performance. Welcome to the New Goldblatt Tools!
There is much more to the new Goldblatt than just our new look. In fact, the new Goldblatt is much like the original Goldblatt of 125 years ago. The company that built its reputation on producing high quality tools for trade professionals that built a nation.
