You may remember Tim “The Toolman” Taylor, who was the host of the home-improvement show “Tool Time”. Actor Tim Allen wasn’t quite as handy at home as he was on the TV program. In all TV fun, there is a kernel of truth and the truth be known, tools as we know them now can be credited with some ingenuity of a man by the name of Joseph Johnson, an engineer from Milwaukee. He and his co-worker, William Seidemann had an idea that revolutionized the tool industry as we know it. Five unique handles and ten sockets that snapped on interchangeably, called “Five do the work of Fifty”. Snap-On Wrench Tools was formed and shaped the industry back in the 1920’s. Fast Forward to today and Snap-On Tools has its hand in everything from Automobiles to Aviation to NASA and Nascar. Its global growth has meant expansion, with a manufacturing facility in Elizabethton, Tennessee. That’s where Piedmont Delivery Service stepped in to assist with the delivery of a small motor. Don Watkins was happy to see us because all those guys like Tim Allen “who have a thing for tools” well... it’s back to business.
