Nick Anton, the founding figure of this company started it back in 1951 with a vision to combine everyday tools and electricity. And, they have been at the forefront of manufacturing modern electric power equipment like chainsaws, electric soldering guns, electric jigsaws, electric engravers, knives, and wet wheel sharpeners and the WEN log splitter line. In their first 50 years, they sold more than 50 million units of their finest products. Headquarters of WEN is located in Elgin, Illinois, from where they are continuously innovating and expanding their product lines to serve thousands of woodworkers and other people all over the world.
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 Founded by Nick Anton back in 1951, WEN originally made its mark by helping bring tools and electricity together (putting the power into power tools).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.
