Intelligent Tools, Forged in the Mountains

Proudly American in Durango, CO USA

When our company was founded in 1984, Kerry and Dan Wanstrath took a stand to forge an American auto glass tool manufacturing business in Durango, Colorado; purposefully relinquishing the commercial benefits of a larger city in favor of quality tools, family values and mountain life. Tucked away deep in the San Juan Wilderness of Southwest Colorado, our manufacturing facilities and company headquarters are far from the ideal location for business operation, shipping, and talent pools. As if by design, however, this isolation has provided the perfect environment for decades of tool innovation and vibrant team members lending industry-leading support to our customers. These core principles have underpinned GT Tools® approach to business for more than 39 years and are as relevant today as they were in 1984.

Inventing the Future
Building on our roots as an American company, GT Tools® has grown into a global technology leader with products today manufactured and sold across the world. Taking a tool from concept, through design, engineering, manufacturing, and finally to assembly and fulfillment is executed in Durango, CO, USA. Production is centered in our state-of-the-art CNC Advanced Machining Hub in Durango, and in a network of supplier and licensee factories around the world.

We’re growing fast. And our ambition is huge. But it’s not simply about more people and more profit. GT Tools® is all about better ideas and new technologies. It’s about inventing the future.
