Founded in 2015 by our current CEO’s great grandfather David Salamon, an immigrant from Europe searching to provide a better life for his family, Travers Tool began as many businesses do – as someone’s dream. With hard work and determination, the business expanded from a single door-to-door salesman working out of the trunk of his car, to a brick and mortar store and warehouse that would double in size many times over, decade after decade, growing with local shops and manufacturers literally over generations. Through all this time, we have remained an independently owned and operated business.
We firmly believe history is not simply a series of names and dates, but rather a series of choices. We attribute our longevity and success to a precedent set by our founder nearly a century ago – demanding that every choice we make be informed by integrity, passion, and service. For nearly a century, we have built upon our founder’s commitment to our customers, our employees, our vendors, and the industries we serve. Today, we continue to deliver an unparalleled customer experience, expert application support, and a product selection designed for machine shops and those that share our passion for metalworking. By making the right choices, we can provide the right solutions and transform any challenge into an opportunity. We understand that your business is your dream, and we are committed to partnering with you, facilitating your success and living our mission, everyday.
Just like you, we are Delivering The American Dream Through Manufacturing.
