Who is Highlander Tool?

Highlander Tool is an industrial distributor specialized in cutting tools and allied equipment headquartered in Johnstown PA. Based in the scenic Laurel Highlands of the Allegheny Mountains, our name evokes the spirit of the mountain settlers who first tamed the area. Our region’s rugged terrain mirrors the tenacity and work ethic of both our employees and diverse customer base alike.

In September 2008 Laurel Holdings acquired ONLY the cutting tool inventory of Thackray Supply, who was primarily a plumbing and HVAC distributor, and established a new business called Thackray Industrial Supply as a cutting tool distributor. In November 2008 the company was rebranded as Highlander Tool to eliminate any market confusion between the company and the “Thackray” organization.
