Harbor Freight Tools
was founded in 1968 in a garage in North Hollywood, CA. Initially selling industrial supplies, the company changed course in the 70's when the company started developing direct relationships with various tool manufacturers, essentially eliminating the middle-man. Since then, the company has grown and leveraged these relationships.

Today, Harbor Freight Tools is one of the country's largest tool and equipment catalog retailers, with a customer base of over 3 million. They offer more than 7,000 tools and equipment items, including products marketed under such brands as Central Machinery, Chicago Electric, Pittsburgh, and Drillmaster.
