Our History

Stahlwille Tools NA, Inc. is a privately owned tool supplier based in Sarasota, Florida.  In 1959, a California businessman began selling (and making) special tools to help technicians fix German automobiles.  After building a business recognized for quality, Charles Baum wanted to find a general-purpose tool company he could represent to supplement the special tools he already sold.  Knowing the tool brand he chose would have to meet the strict standards he set for his product lines, Charles began selling STAHLWILLE tools.    After many years in California, the Baum family business moved to Sarasota, Florida and continued to grow.

In 1997 the Baum family moved the Texas-based distribution center to Sarasota, Florida.  That is when Stahlwille Tools NA, Inc. was launched.

Today, Stahlwille Tools NA, Inc. is still located in Sarasota, Florida.  Here we warehouse many of the tools found in the STAHLWILLE catalog.  We have a staff that is both knowledgeable and helpful.  Our mission is to offer service and support that matches the quality level of the tools we sell.
