SureWerx is a wholesale supplier of premium quality tool, equipment and safety products specifically developed for the professional markets. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia with warehouse operations in New York, Illinois and across Canada, SureWerx provides one of the widest ranges of industry leading products under several exceptional corporate brands including:
Tools & Equipment (Canada):
Tools & Equipment (USA):
- American Forge & Foundry®
Safety Products (Canada & USA):
Our professional “One-Source” product portfolio includes: hand tools, tool storage, shop equipment, lube/fluid transfer, air tools material handling, hydraulic lifting equipment, lighting, abrasives and cutting tools, Hi-Vis safety apparel, FR safety apparel, rain wear, work wear, work boots, PPE and fall protection products.
In 2000, SureWerx made its first acquisition in the U.S., American Forge & Foundry (AFF) based in Albany New York. This became the base of operations for our U.S. tool business, and over the past 16 years, AFF has grown to become a leader in hydraulic lifting products to the professional automotive, tire and heavy duty markets.
This past November SureWerx acquired Sellstrom Manufacturing Co., a 93 year old PPE and welding safety brand based in Schaumburg, Illinois. This acquisition is perfectly aligned with our corporate strategy to expand into the U.S. safety market.
Sellstrom provides SureWerx the opportunity to not only expand their existing PPE and welding safety portfolio, but further provides a platform in which to pull our Canadian safety brands into the U.S.
Our goal is to become a complete “One-Source” supplier of tool and safety products in North America, and to this end we continue to search for complimentary brands to acquire. In June of 2016, we successfully acquired KP Industries, the designer and manufacturer of KneePro, the world’s best knee and elbow protection products based in Michigan. This business has now been fully integrated into our Sellstrom operations in Illinois.
Since November 2015, we have been working diligently to achieve our “One-Source” strategy. We are very excited then to present this catalog that showcases the first of many steps we will be taking towards achieving this goal. In this catalog you will find a broadly expanded Sellstrom PPE portfolio, including a completely revamped safety glass program, several new face shields and goggles, the addition of a complete line of hearing protection as well as the full range of KneePro knee pads and ArmorGard elbow pads.
Also included in this catalog is our full line, highly competitive PeakWorks fall protection portfolio, a wide range of Pioneer Hi-Viz safety apparel products and our premium Ranpro polyurethane safety boots. These line additions are the first of many new product initiatives that will be introduced into the U.S. over the next couple of years.
We are passionate about the safety and productivity of the North American worker. By supplying only the highest quality, solution based and innovative products and brands, we have earned their trust time and again. Our brands offer workers the peace of mind they need to take on any job, large or small.
