The Powerhouse Tools Company (PTC) was founded in 1946 in Virginia by Robert Hauser, the grandson of an Austrian Immigrant, who worked as a travelling Tools Salesmen for Leonard Bailey and Company in the late 1800s. Robert saw the big opportunity in manufacturing hand tools during the time when the Second World War just ended and the nations in Europe devastated by war were starting their arduous rebuilding process. American-made tools were sought after in Europe as these were known to be reliable, durable and with a high level of craftsmanship. Striking and measuring tools were the first products manufactured by PTC under the “Powerhouse” brand.
