Company Information

Company description by Reed Manufacturing Co.
Reed Manufacturing has been producing fine tools for worldwide professional trades since its founding, in 1896, by Carl Reed. It was purchased in 1902 by Reuben Wright with money he made selling water and hardware during the 1849 California Gold Rush, followed by successful timber businesses in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Western Pennsylvania. The company continues to be operated by his descendants: fifth generation members of the Wright family. Mark Wright and Scott Wright serve as President, Manufacturing & Product Development and President, Sales & Finance, respectively. At Reed in several roles More... for more than twenty-five years each, Mark and Scott uphold the family traditions of product innovation, highest quality pipe tools, great customer service, a cutting edge factory, and extra value to customers.

Reed celebrates its 118th year of business in 2014. From the company’s beginning, 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. The “Best Ever” designation is given to a tool whose quality, benefits, or performance has been significantly improved over all previous versions. These continuous improvements are advantages to buying Reed. “Why Reed” statements throughout our literature and website explain why that tool is superior to any other on the market. The information can be used with confidence to compare Reed products with competitive methods. 2014 brings more additions and improvements to the breadth and depth of Reed’s tool line. Recent additions include the Drill-Powered Hydrostatic Test Pumps, Drill-Powered Bevelers for plastic pipe, more DEB1 Deburring Tools and improvements to long-standing Reed tools. Nearly every Reed tool is the best of its kind in the world, outlined in “Why Reed” statements, and each offers a Lifetime Warranty. Less
