Vaughan & Bushnell  acquires Dasco Pro

Vaughan & Bushnell Manufacturing Co.has acquired substantially all the assets of Dasco Pro Inc., a manufacturer of chisels and punches.

Dasco, located in Rockford, Illinois, has been forging and selling tools since 1922. The company offers a broad range of forged hand tools for construction professionals, home improvement enthusiasts and hobbyists.

“We are extremely excited about our acquisition of Dasco and combining these two great, venerable American companies,” said Charlie Vaughan, company president. “This acquisition will expand our product offering within the same growing retail category, generate further economies of scale for our ‘Made in the USA’ manufacturing, and strengthen our competitive advantage against other tool manufacturers, both domestic and foreign.”

Dasco’s products will continue to be sold by Vaughan under the Dasco trade name.

One of the world's largest producers of hammers and striking tools, Vaughan is one of America’s oldest tool companies. Founded in 1869, this fifth generation, family-owned company pioneered the design and innovation behind today's modern hammer.
