Tools for Pipes

Print version

Reed Manufacturing has been producing fine tools for worldwide professional trades since its founding, in 1896. Reed associates have invented tools that continually become industry standards, including the Quick Release™ Tubing Cutter, various tools for plastic pipe, vises, plus Hinged Cutters™ and Rotary™ cutters for large diameter pipe. In addition to new tools, each year Reed makes end-user driven improvements and refinements to existing tools. REED Mfg.Co produces around 90% of these major tool categories in the US market, and sells in more than 100 countries around the world.

More recently the company broke away from a 40-year tradition of marketing their product through wholesale distribution. Dougal says, "This change is beneficial to the distributor and his customer. We have been able to streamline efficiencies with improved order fulfillment by providing quicker turnaround and a knowledgeable sales team that will make joint sales calls with the distributor. And we’ve put added incentives like free freight in place.”

After 80 years, the traditions that Charles Harter put in place are still continuing to build on the highest industry standard for quality and service.
