We’re a small company, and we like it that way.
John founded Current Tools, based in Upstate, South Carolina, in 1999, and in 21 years, the company has expanded far beyond the confines of Upstate South Carolina.
In the beginning, Current Tools manufactured one product, a conduit bender, in a small warehouse. Now, the company makes more than 100 products, and distributes them worldwide, from its expansive, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
A native of Greenville, John has a degree in English from The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, but his entire career has been focused on tools and equipment, beginning with a stint with Ameco, the equipment division of Fluor Corporation.
Over the years, John worked with companies that distributed new and reconditioned construction equipment before opening Current Tools.
John’s background in distribution helps him understand the problems and frustrations that most distributors have experienced with customer service. From the beginning, John has made personalized customer service the top priority for Current Tools.
If you have an issue, you can call Current Tools and speak to one of our four engineers. How many other companies offer that kind of service?
John is committed to keeping jobs in America. While many other manufacturing companies have taken some or all of their manufacturing overseas, John is proud to have his team members who live right here in the Upstate.
His belief in hiring once and hiring right is clearly seen by the number of employees who have long tenures with the company. Current Tools is a small company, but that’s part of what allows it to offer customers such dedicated and focused service.
John and his wife have two daughters. His hobbies include biking and hiking. In 2019, John hiked a portion of the Appalachian Trail, and he’s hoping to tackle another section of the trail in the summer of 2021.
