Lincolnshire, Ill. - July 2006 - Klein Tools, a leading manufacturer of professional hand tools and occupational equipment, has moved its corporate headquarters from Skokie, Ill., to a new 64,000-sq. ft. facility located on a seven-acre site at 450 Bond Street in Lincolnshire, Ill, a northwestern suburb of Chicago.
According to Klein Tools Chairman and CEO Richard T. Klein, Jr., "Our new building headquarters will support future business growth and provide us more room for expanding Skokie's manufacturing operations.
