Imperial® – More than 100 Years of Excellence

The industrial age was just shifting into high gear in 1905 when four men got together to form The Imperial Brass Manufacturing Company (“Imperial”). The company began its development featuring a line of automotive and boat brass specialties. In the ensuing years, Imperial became known as “expert specialists in brass”.

Their design of the non-soldering fitting, known today as the flared fitting, led designers to the development of flaring tools and cutters. Imperial patented the first flaring tool in 1917. Over the years, the product list grew to include tube fittings, tube working tools, refrigeration and air conditioning products and much more.

Today, Stride Tool — The manufacturers of Imperial — are world leaders in the development of innovative and dependable products, providing hand tools to make work easier for technicians in a wide array of industries.

Throughout its history, the Imperial name has been trusted worldwide, by engineers who are serious about their work. Who rely on quality tools to get the job done right. Time after time.
