Wright Tool is partnering with SMS Equipment for its maintenance and assembly needs. SMS Equipment, based in Acheson, Alta., chose Wright Tool as its preferred hand tool supplier for internal use. The companies also plan to establish a direct sales relationship to offer Wright Tool products to SMS Equipment customers.

Both companies operate with the common philosophy of offering solutions to their customers. SMS Equipment is currently one of the world’s largest Komatsu dealerships and supplies contractors in the mining, construction, utility and forestry industries.

“SMS Equipment is very proud of our newly formed partnership with Wright Tool,” said Lindon Petty Jr., vice president of parts and service at SMS Equipment, Inc. “The Wright Tool product is recognized for its quality and Wright is recognized as a company that is focused on safety. We look forward to making this product available to our customers.”

Privately held, Wright Tool says it offers the flexibility that SMS Equipment requires for its wide variety of product offerings, most of which will be from Wright Tool’s metric options. Wright Tool has the ability to create customized sets for SMS Equipment’s mechanics.
