Our Story

Founded in 1894 as Cleveland Pneumatic Tool Company in Cleveland, Ohio. Since inception, Cleco has grown to become a global manufacturing solutions provider, headquartered in the United States, with locations across North America, Europe and Asia. As our product offerings expanded globally, we transitioned trusted and recognized brands for fixtured assembly solutions (DGD) and material removal and drilling (Master Power, Recoules Quackenbush and Dotco) to our Cleco Production Tools brand umbrella. Combining our brands enhances our extensive history as a solutions provider, while providing clarity and an improved experience for our customers.
