Techni-Tool is a leading provider of test equipment, tool kits, soldering supplies, ESD products, chemicals, hand tools, and more to the electronic production industry for more than 50 years. We take pride in keeping up-to-date with technology and offering the newest products available. Our products are available through our catalogs, website, and direct sales force, and 95% of all orders are shipped the same day.

In 1955, Techni-Tool founder Ben Weiss was involved in a 63-year-old mail order dental company when calls started coming in from industrial companies requesting certain types of dental instruments they could not find anywhere else ­ such as fine cutting pliers, wire holders, and tweezers.  By 1959, Techni-Tool was born.  In 2012, Techni-Tool, and its affiliate Wassco Inc., were acquired by Grainger, North America’s leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating products serving diverse businesses and institutions across the country.
