Sept. 5, 2018 (Lincolnshire, IL.) – Klein Tools, Inc. and Tenacious Holdings, Inc. (the parent company of Ergodyne, “Ergodyne”) have announced today that Klein Tools has acquired Ergodyne. Ergodyne will be operated as a separate business unit in St. Paul, Minnesota, at its current headquarters. Tom Votel will remain president and continue to lead the Ergodyne team.

Ergodyne, founded in 1983, has spent the last three decades pioneering the development of products that Make the Workplace A Betterplace™.

“Ergodyne and Klein Tools have much in common, including our commitment to innovation, safety, our customers and our reputations for producing high-quality products,” says Tom Klein Jr., co-president, Klein Tools. “We believe that our combined resources and expertise will enable us to grow more quickly together than we could have separately.
