Snap-on is among the leading brands of early American tool chests. Founded in 1920, the company specializes in toolboxes for auto mechanics. This makes it possible for the professional or DIY weekend warrior to own every hand tool and keep them organized.

Throughout the years, the brand name has remained strong with a reputation for durable products and great after-sale support. They are not, however, known for being the most affordable in the market. Find out why and if they’re worth it.

Why Are Snap-On Toolboxes So Expensive?

When asked if Snap-On toolboxes were worth the price, one customer answered the question by saying, “If you work in a shop that requires moving your box a good deal, I would consider a Snap-On box. They hold up better than most.”

“Snap-on has earned all the reputation that they have.” This is a direct consumer quote who is pleased with the quality, warranty, and service that goes along with each Snap-On purchase. The tools are made with premium materials and built to last. Toolboxes that are frequently used result in multiple doors pulls. This causes wear and tear on any chest and with this in mind, Snap-On Toolboxes are designed to hold up under frequent door pulls, and in many cases, longer than other premium tool boxes similarly or lower priced.

Some contend that the brand is “overkill” for the weekend mechanic, but professionals who use their equipment on a regular basis benefit from the exceptional durability. The Snap-On Tool Company has a rich history and has steadily built its reputation for providing high quality, American made automotive tools and accessories for nearly 100 years.

History of Snap-On Tools

Snap-On Tools is an automotive tool manufacturing company established in 1920 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When Joseph Johnson and William Seidemann began the operation, it was known as the Snap-On Wrench Company. They manufactured a set of 10 sockets that snapped on to five interchangeable handles. The innovation was intended to minimize the number of tools needed to do multiple projects and the company slogan “5 do the work of 50” became their mantra.

The company expanded during the post World War II era. Company dealers hired became independent businessmen and authorized dealers of the Snap-On Tools line, establishing driving routes using large walk-in vans to house the inventory of an expanding product line. Visits were paid to mechanics and automotive professionals on sales routes.

Series of Acquisitions

Snap-On Tools became a large operation with workers at the Milwaukee plant joining the Teamsters labor union. Plants were established in Tennessee and North Carolina. The main headquarters was based out of Kenosha Wisconsin, manufacturing American made automotive tools and accessories. The company made a series of acquisitions, including the Swedish tool brand Bahco, in 1999, the Pro-Cut company in 2014, Car-O-Liner Holding in 2016, along with Sturtevant Richmont and in May of 2017, Norbar Torque Tools Holding Limited.

Award Winning Products

The Snap-On Tools plant in Murphy, North Carolina was recognized by Industry Week as one of the top 10 plants in North America in 2011. President Donald Trump toured the Kenosha, Wisconsin plant in April of 2017, guaranteeing additional government contracts for companies keeping their workforce in America. Snap-On has maintained a steady stream of job opportunities for Americans to use their entrepreneurial skills to build their wealth through a stable line of quality, in-demand products. A look at the top five most expensive Snap-On Tools boxes gives us an idea of the value for the cost for frequent users.
