Clauss is a company strong in tradition.
From humble beginnings back in 1877, Clauss has evolved into a company that now is a
leader in providing quality hand tools and related products to markets with demanding
needs. Clauss was founded as The Elyria Shear Works in a one-room shop in Elyria, Ohio in
1877. A decade later, the company was moved to Fremont, Ohio, where it became known as The
Clauss Shear Works and remains in business today.
We started as a manufacturer of scissors and shears, straight razors, and serrated kitchen
knives. Clauss has survived the Great Depression, two world wars, and boom and bust times.
It has grown to include six diversified divisions, and has become a prime mover in several
varied industries including Fiberoptics/Telcom, a course surely not envisioned by its
founders. At the same time, Clauss has maintained its quality standards to provide
professional tools that meet the ever increasing demands of our customers worldwide.
Today the Company's divisions include Consumer/Mass Market, Electronic,
Floral/Craft, Industrial and Export, each selling a wide variety of products to help
companies like yours in these markets. Visit the pages that best reflect the markets you
serve and see what Clauss can provide you.
