Tool Kit Experts Since 1975

Tecra Tools is a tool kitting company that was founded in 1981 by Bill and Jill Hensley in Fremont, California. The company was initially started as a mail-order supplier of specialty hand tools for the electronics industry. However, the company quickly expanded its product line to include tool kits for a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, and telecommunications.

In the early years, Tecra Tools operated out of the Hensley's garage, where they assembled kits and filled orders by hand. However, as the business grew, the company moved to larger facilities and invested in automated equipment to increase production efficiency.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Tecra Tools continued to expand its product line and customer base. In 1993, the company launched its first website, allowing customers to order products online. The website quickly became a valuable tool for the company, enabling it to reach a wider audience and offer a more convenient ordering process.

In the early 2000s, Tecra Tools began to focus on providing customized tool kits for specific industries and applications. The company developed a process for working with customers to identify their specific tool needs and designing custom tool kits to meet those needs. This approach proved to be very successful, and today, Tecra Tools is known as a leader in the tool kitting industry, with a reputation for high-quality products and excellent customer service.

In 2015, Tecra Tools was acquired by All-Spec Industries, a leading distributor of electronic production and assembly tools. The acquisition enabled Tecra Tools to expand its reach and product offerings, while still maintaining its commitment to quality and customer service.

Today, Tecra Tools continues to innovate and evolve, offering a wide range of standard and customized tool kits for a variety of industries and applications. With over 40 years of experience and a dedicated team of professionals, Tecra Tools is well-positioned to continue its growth and success in the years to come.
