Ferree's Tools designs have always been based on simplicity, accuracy and efficiency while focused on quality, economy and service.

The History Of Ferree’s Tools Inc. 


In 1946 Cliff and Barbara Ferree opened a one room repair shop in Battle Creek, Michigan known as Ferree’s Music Shop, Inc. Their first location was on the second floor above a shoe store. In 1956, to expand the business, they bought the repair tool departments of both Conn and Leblanc.

From 1962 thru 1967, Ferree's conducted a very successful series of 2 week repair courses. During this time the business was moved to its current location, 1477 Michigan Ave. Two additions were added to the building in 1967 and a second building was completed in 1976 to accommodate the business growth.    Throughout this time they were always perfecting tools, introducing new tools and products to meet customers requests.

Sadly in 2011 and 2017 the founders passed away leaving their legacy to their sons and grandson.  In 2022 Tom Ferree (the youngest son) purchased all of the shares of the company from his brothers and nephew, making him sole owner.

Tom spent over 20 years in the shop working and helping develop many of the tools that are still manufactured today.  

The next generation of the Ferree family has vowed to continue the traditions started in 1946. It is their goal to use modern technologies and practices that will ensure the low cost and quality our customers, old and new, will enjoy for years to come.
