Palmgren has been a leader in the metalworking industry with exceptionally dependable work-holding & positioning products. Palmgren manufactures top-quality vises, machine tool accessories, and metalworking machine tools to provide you with solutions that work. Palmgren is a trusted brand of choice for over 95 years.
Palmgren was originally founded in 1919 by Clarence Palmgren for the production and sale of vises and rotary tables and was, at the time, called Chicago Tool & Engineering Co. The quality and reliability of their products inspired CH Hanson to absorb the company in 2013.
As a subsection of CH Hanson, delivery, stock status, and overall strategy have vastly improved. Palmgren steel products will now evolve and conform to more modern standards and expectations. CH Hanson is known for their constant innovation, which is now applied to their Palmgren line.
Palmgren products are large and sturdy steel tools with very reliable foundations. Their current productions include: drill press vises, general-purpose vises, drill presses, bench grinders, and more. The same quality work tools are now infused with the modern mindset of innovation to make Palmgren a top competitor in steel work tools.
