The guys over at Garagejournal have come up with a special event that they’ve called, “Wilde Wednesday.” This wednesday support local manufacturing by purchasing some Wilde tools. People are into locally grown foods, so why not locally made tools? Located in Hiawatha Kansas, they started in Kansas City on Southwest Blvd, but got tired of their factory flooding every time it rained. They moved out to Hiawatha Kansas and have been there ever since.
You might not have heard of Wilde tools, but you most likely have used them. That’s because Wilde makes a lot of tools for larger companies like Craftsman, Armstrong, Snap-On, etc. Wilde has never tried to get their name out there because they didn’t want to compete with their own tools. Now that Craftsman is mostly imported though, Wilde wants to step up and let people know that they were the one’s making the great quality USA tools.
Tools aren’t made by robots. They’re made by people. When you support a local tool company like Wilde, you are not just buying a great quality tool. You are also supporting all the people that are involved in every level of the company. You are also supporting all the people here at Epstein’s that get your order out to you. You are also supporting Hiawatha and Kansas City and the country in which we live. That’s a lot of supporting for buying one pair of pliers.
We have many great closeout deals on Wilde tools as well as regular catalog items. Check out all the Wilde items we sell. And don’t just buy Wilde pliers. Tell people about them. Let people know there is a local tool manufacturer in their neighborhood. Also, look through Wilde’s website. Anything they sell, we can get.
