The Swanson Tool Company

, 1 min reading time



For nearly a century, Swanson Tool Company has been a leading, global manufacturer of layout, leveling and measuring tools. The Frankfort, Ill.-based company is the inventor of the SPEED Square--the carpenters’ layout tool which combines the most common functions of the combination square, try square and framing square into one indispensable tool.

Under continuous manufacture since 1928, the SPEED Square is only one of the quality carpentry tools from Swanson. A complete line of squares, levels, straight edges and marking products are just some of the exacting quality products that tradesmen ask for by name.

Today, Swanson Tool Company remains a privately-owned business, under the direction of the Allemand family, and has been for over two decades. The company continues to specialize in the innovative design and manufacture of tools and accessories used in building, carpentry, plumbing, electrical and other applications.
