Remember WEN? We've been designing and distributing high quality and affordable power tools for decades. Founded by Nick Anton back in 1951, WEN originally made its mark by helping bring tools and electricity together (putting the power into power tools). Our research and development team played a vital role in helping to develop a variety of common everyday tools such as the chainsaw, the electric soldering gun, the electric jigsaw, the electric engraver, and the knife and wet wheel sharpeners. WEN even pioneered random orbital technology; the technology seen in most polishers, waxers, and buffers today that gives cars everywhere the streak free shine they deserve.
Since then, our expertise has expanded to encompass a wide variety of products including drill presses, tool chests, bench grinders, nailers, miter saws, hand tools, generators, and air compressors to name a few. By 2001, only 50 years after our humble beginnings, we had already sold over 50 million consumer units. Today, WEN's headquarters can be found in Elgin, Illinois. Our goal is to help woodworkers and artisans across the world execute their wildest imaginations.
