MSC expands Paramount professional line of hand tools

In today's highly competitive environment, tradesmen and mechanics look to their hand tools for the highest level of performance for the most demanding jobs. It is with this in mind that MSC Industrial Supply Co., recently announced the expansion of its Paramount line of hand tools. Paramount is recognized in the industrial market for quality, durability, ergonomics, performance and lifetime warranty.

Hand tools are go-to tools for tradesmen and mechanics, and reflect a very personal choice for an essential part of their work, as these tools are used daily and require continued reliability, comfort and performance. Paramount hand tools are lighter, stronger and more durable and offer several unique performance advantages for workers who rely on these essential tools.

Only Paramount products are manufactured from the highest quality materials available. Sockets, wrenches and ratchets are made from chrome vanadium steel and are heat treated for the correct balance of strength and hardness. Paramount coats its hex keys with a PTFE coating that prevents rusting and extends tool life; constructs its hammers with carbon fiber handles to reduce weight and lessen the residual user effects from fatigue; and equips its screwdrivers with no-slip grips that ensure user safety and comfort. Additionally, all Paramount hand tools either meet or exceed the standards set forth by the American National Standards Institute and are 100 percent compliant under the Trade Agreements Act.

"Paramount hand tools are key for professionals who require the highest level of quality and durability," said Cindy Nardella, MSC business manager. "Even the most difficult jobs become easier and less time consuming with these quality designed tools. When compared to other hand tools in the market, Paramount products consistently outperform at every level, giving users a feeling of strength and confidence."

MSC offers more than 1,200 different Paramount products, all of which can be viewed in a new full-color 54-page catalog available in print and online versions. To receive a copy of the Paramount catalog by mail, call MSC at 1.800.645.7270 or view the online catalog at
