On the Thursday, May 20th broadcast at 3PM Pacific and 6PM Eastern, Jay Whaley chats with Peter Murphy, owner of Euro Tool, Inc., a major importer of precision hand tools, equipment, & supplies to the jewelry, watchmaking, lapidary, bead stringing, hobby, electronics, and beauty trades. We distribute worldwide via our network of authorized distributors. The present day EURO TOOL originated with Herman Kirkpatrick representing Albert Froidevaux and Sons of Switzerland in the North American market in 1978. In 1990 we took a big step and built our own warehouse/office facility. We had our grand opening on October 6, 1990. At that time we wondered how we were going to fill such a “large” warehouse. In 1994 the company, land and building were purchased from the Swiss partners and the trade name of EURO TOOL became the company’s name: EURO TOOL, Inc. As of 1998 the registered trade names of ToolSmart™ and BeadSmart™ are used in the fine jewelry trade and bead trade respectively. EURO TOOL sells into the jewelry/watchmaking and beading trade via qualifying dealers in North America and abroad. We also sell to dealers in the beauty, hobby and electronics trade. The company has grown every year since 1990 and has brought to market many innovations to make the job of jewelers, watchmakers and others easier. We believe that EURO TOOL has brought more new ideas to market than any other company in the industry. Our commitment to innovation continues as we grow along with our many loyal customers. EURO TOOL is dedicated to continuing our growth using the same foundations which has carried us well so far. This includes offering outstanding customer service combined with excellent product lines.
