About Lowell


Founded in 1869 as the Lowell wrench company, we have been a leading innovator in the field of ratchet technology. Offering a wide array of standard and custom designed tools for industrial, utility and military applications, our 100% made in the U.S.A. tools provide for years of trouble free service.

On most manual jobs and machine operation, there are turning points between inefficiency and efficiency.

During manual labor, sometimes a problem arises and there’s no special tool readily available to handle it. So workers will compromise by using a tool that was not designed for the task.

When operating a machine, a poorly-designed control may hinder efficient operation. Here, the compromise occurs when operators learn to work around the machine’s weak points.

In either case, a compromise solution drives up costs because it doesn’t work as well as a good design.

At Lowell, ratchet technology makes workers and original equipment more productive. We use this technology in nearly every product we make: ratchet arms; ratchet clutches; socket wrenches; roller clutches; and related products. So our ratchet technology is really a turning point for productivity in manufacturing, construction, and maintenance operations. Since our start as the Lowell Wrench Company in 1869, we have grown to be a leading American manufacturer of ratchet technology for civilian industry, the military, and utilities. Our ratchet technology could be a turning point for you.
