For 51 years, the Snap-on Tools plant in Algona, IA, has been producing best-in-class tool products for technicians around the globe. On Sept. 13, the plant celebrated a historic achievement as the two millionth tool storage unit rolled off the line and was unveiled to a crowd of associates, Snap-on executives and media.

The special event was commemorated by a special “platinum” edition toolbox that featured a built-in Bose stereo system, illuminated Snap-on logos, platinum metallic paint job, and velvet liners in the drawers.

“Producing the two millionth box is an impressive and exciting achievement. But today is about much more,” said Tom Ward, president of Snap-on Tools Company. “Today’s milestone is a testament to our dedicated workforce, to quality manufacturing and to providing the most valued tool and product solutions to technicians worldwide.”

Snap-on recently announced that the plant, which employs 300 people who have worked there for an average of 33 years each, will undergo a 51,000 square-foot expansion, which will include a new warehouse and a link to the company’s overall supply chain, bringing the total square footage to 470,000 square feet.

The tool box will be displayed at Snap-on’s private tool museum in Kenosha, WI, and a duplicate will be on display at the Algona plant.
