Klein Tools acquires Ergodyne

Klein Tools Inc. announced that it has acquired Ergodyne from Tenacious Holdings.

Ergodyne will operate as a separate business unit in St. Paul, Minnesota, at its current headquarters. Tom Votel will remain president and continue to lead the Ergodyne team.

Founded in 1983, Ergodyne is the maker of the Tenacious Work Gear line of safety products. 

“Ergodyne and Klein Tools have much in common, including our commitment to innovation, safety, our customers and our reputations for producing high-quality products,” said Tom Klein Jr., co-president, Klein Tools. “We believe that our combined resources and expertise will enable us to grow more quickly together than we could have separately. We’re excited to welcome Ergodyne to the Klein Tools team.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to join the Klein brand and family,” said Votel. “Our company has seen tremendous success over the last three decades within the safety space, and we can’t wait to propel that forward with this historic partnership.”
