Swanson Tool Company
The name “swanson” comes from John W. Swanson, who was a well known engineer and inventor in the early 1900’s. His invention was a type of screwdriver with a flat blade at one end and a serrated edge at the other. This design allowed him to use it both as a screwdriver and as an awl.
The name “swanner” came from the fact that he had made several types of tools using different materials such as wood, bone, ivory and brass.
John W. Swanson died in 1913. His son, William J. Swanson Jr., took over the business and continued to develop new products based on his father’s original designs.
Today, the company is owned by KAPRO Incorporated (Kapros) which was founded in 1956 by John R. Kaprolos and Robert A. Smith.
