About Tuff Grade


In the beginning…

The Tuff Grade product line started in the early 2000’s when a group of independent industrial and safety distributors decided it was time to level the playing field and go head-to-head with national chains using private label products.

Fast forward to today…

Today, Tuff Grade is a line of quality tools and products that spans thousands of SKU’s across dozens of product categories including hand tools, gloves, safety vests, casters, carbide burrs and drill bits to name just a few. The Tuff Grade product offering continues to grow every year, achieved by both new-line introductions and also line extensions.
