Coast Tool Industrial Solutions has been in the business of selling metalworking and industrial supplies for over 70 years. Over this time period, manufacturing methods and techniques have changed substantially. Coast Tool's focus has been and continues to be on helping our customers implement the most current metal cutting technologies so that they can overcome their manufacturing challenges and increase their productivity, ultimately improving their bottom line.  

Coast Tool Company was founded in October 1945 by Russel Gilwee and Tyko Enbom. The company started as a manufacturer's representative firm. By 1947, the scope of the firm had shifted towards industrial distribution. The company was incorporated in 1959.  


 In 2013 Coast Tool Company was acquired by Toolmex Industrial Solutions, a family owned diversified industrial supplier, designer and producer of highly engineered products for the metalworking, machinery and electric motor industries.


With Toolmex as a mother company, Coast Tool has found a perfect partner to reinforce its long standing tradition of brining application driven solutions to the metalworking industry.
