Pioneering the idea of interchangeable sockets and wrench handles, Joseph Johnson and William Seidemann, formed the Snap-on Wrench Co. in 1920. The company manufactured and marketed 10 sockets that would “snap on” to five interchangeable handles.
Snap-on today supports professionals in critical industries — inside and outside vehicle repair — by delivering a broad array of productivity solutions that make work easier, including tools, equipment, diagnostics, repair information and systems solutions.
