The CanTorque Story

Founded in 2000 in a meagre 40 sq. ft. section of his father-in-law's automotive shop and consisting of a work bench and a single section of shelving.  We operated in our original location for our first 3 years. CanTorque now boasts a 12,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art warehouse and development centre with a bold and progressive styling.

On top of carrying a massive inventory, we have been focused on never-ending innovation and quality product development, countless hours and millions of dollars have been invested in pushing the boundaries of torque tool design and creating strong bonds with our customers and suppliers.

At CanTorque, our motto is "Problem Solved". The most important part of our business is understanding the problem our customers face and coming up with a carefully considered, individually tailored solution.

When you speak with us you might even feel like we are grilling you for information, but rest assured that this is because of the number of factors we need to understand in order to conceptualize the problem and provide the best possible solution. We’ll always be honest as we take the time to fully understand your situation.

Our way of doing business has contributed to the great success we experience today and we couldn’t be more proud of the work we do and our ability to solve even the most difficult problems. This is the CanTorque Story.

We care about our clients and we care about our tools. But we don’t just say we care, we prove it by how we operate. Here’s the proof:

Calibration comes standard: Every tool we sell, rent or manufacture, is function tested and fully calibrated.

Complimentary tool demos and training: We want every tool that bears our name to be used properly; we offer on-site customer demonstrations of our tools as well as training sessions if required.

Our tools come in ultra-strong cases: High-quality tools deserve high-quality protection for transportation and storage. All of the wrenches we sell or rent are available with high-end, durable cases.

No-downtime guarantee: We go above and beyond when it comes to taking care of our customers by covering each and every wrench we sell – over their entire lifespan. If our wrenches fail for any reason, we will provide you with a no-cost replacement for as long as it takes to get your tool back up and running.
