TASK TOOLS celebrates 50 years of growth

Canadian tool company was launched in 1968.

TASK TOOLS is celebrating 50 successful years of selling hand tools, power tool accessories, abrasives and worksite accessories throughout North America. As a family owned and operated business, CEO Craig Caplan (left in photo, shown with TASK president Scott Dore at right), succeeded his father, Michael Caplan in 2008 and has continued to grow their network to over 2,000 dealers with a product offering of over 2,500 professional-grade tools that stand the rigor of day-to-day use.

To celebrate this milestone, TASK launched a new line of heavy-duty ballistics work gear, a line of patented Starlock oscillating accessories and an expanded assortment of European-made drill bits (which includes SDS Plus, SDS Max, Signature multi-purpose and Signature glass and tile). “Listening to customer needs and making use of the latest innovation in materials and manufacturing processes, continues to fuel our product development,” said CEO, Craig Caplan.

Starting this month, TASK is running a series of contests and giveaways through social media. Fan-favourite products from new and popular TASK lines will be given away every month for the remainder of the year. The first contest is live right now on Instagram @TaskTools and the prize is a 15” Open Top Tool Bag.

“We believe our success is a result of our customer-first focus and I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued support to help us reach this exciting milestone. We look forward to the next fifty years of growth!” concluded Caplan.

Founded in 1968, TASK TOOLS is a Canadian, family owned and operated business that provides quality products, exceptional customer service and award-winning packaging & merchandising. They also provide the industry’s best warranty support to hardware and building supply retailers across North America.
