Tool King, Inc. has been distinguished as Manufacturer of the Year by the Wheeling/Prospect Heights Area Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
With this award going to only one manufacturer per year, we are delighted to receive it as it acknowledges our commitment to the community of Wheeling and its economic development.
Bjorn and Peter Hestad founded Tool King in 1976. Our enterprise has since served and embraced this thriving village. We have also embraced the evolution of our brand, products and services over time. Beyond our impeccable expertise in slitting and edging, and our diverse product offerings, we have strong values upon which our business is firmly based.
Our strong family-focus carries over into our local community of Wheeling.
We hope to maintain the Wheeling-based business that we have established over the long-term. Our company values creativity and a commitment to a safe and positive work environment, but also this community to which we belong.
We hope to continue to actively represent the company at local events, just like the upcoming job fair at Wheeling High School on May 8th.
The unique business and employment potential that we offer is just another way that we serve Wheeling.
We hope to have a lasting, positive impact here.
We are happy to have a growing business that serves domestic and even international needs throughout North America as well as in Latin America, Europe, Asia and even the Middle East.
And we are just as happy to call Wheeling, Illinois our home.
