At hilmor, we have a simple design philosophy – create tools that are a step ahead. The kind that are equipped with features that save our customers time, frustration and maybe even a few headaches. Each tool is designed with all of the features you need and none of the ones you don’t. They are made to work in the toughest environments. The kind you encounter – day in and day out.
To uncover the heritage of hilmor, you have to go back. Way back. We got our start in 1926 in Sheffield, England. We began with just one product – a tube bender. Sure, it sounds simple now, but at the time, hilmor cold-form benders were the first of their kind for plumbers, electricians and HVAC/R technicians. And, it was that one tube bender that allowed us to create a foundation for the company we aspired to be.
Over the years, hilmor has only grown stronger. In turn, we’ve become a strong American-based brand determined more than ever to bring ingenuity to the tools you’ve come to rely on every day. We’ve listened. We’ve learned. We’ve retooled an entire category. Simply put, we’re making it our mission to help you keep your cool even in the most sweltering of conditions. More advancements. More streamlined designs. More ways to help you get the job done right. Together, we’ll conquer it.
