Acme Tools was founded by George Kuhlman in 1948 as a small electric motor repair shop in downtown Grand Forks, North Dakota. The business was named ''ACME'' because it represented the highest level or degree attainable - the peak of perfection. The core values back then were simple, offer customers the highest quality products at competitive prices, backed by superior professional service and support. Now two generations and 70 years later, this family owned business has grown to become a major retailer of tools and equipment.
Today, Acme Tools celebrates 70 years of experience serving customers and continues to be one of the premier retailers of tools and equipment with some of the largest first-class showrooms in the nation and the best online tool store in e-commerce. With ten locations in North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa, Acme Tools serves the contractor, woodworker and do-it-yourselfer with a wide selection of tools and equipment from all the major manufacturers.
