TONA, a.s. Pečky was founded in 1892 as an iron foundry. During the following years the range of products gradually changed and after having manufactured agricultural machines and industrial tools, TONA started to make professional tools in the 1950s. At that time the forge was built - it was a decisive step to production program stabilization. Step by step, manufacture of all types of wrenche and spanners was introduced: open-end, combination, ring, hex-key and pipe wrenches. The sets called "Gola" were a part of the production program as well. The company also successfully completed the development of deflecting beam torque wrenches and launched their production. An important year for TONA was 1992 when, within privatization program, the company became a division of THE STANLEY WORKS, an American corporation, which helped TONA not only to get financial support but also provided the company with an opportunity to increase its product range and to make and sell also the hand tools with this well-known trade mark. Lately, new products have been integrated into production on a regular basis, especially such products which are required by mechanics, who use TONA tools both for work at industrial plants or car service in garages and for work at home.
