About Us

Griffin manufacturing has been designing and manufacturing precision hand tools since 1945, alwayswith the greatest care and dedication possible. The journey began in the mid 1940's with two gentlemen, Harold Griffin and Angelo Papia. They started Griffin Manufacturing in a small warehouse in downtown Rochester, New York (see below). After a couple years they had outgrown that location and moved the plant to a small suburb called Webster in Rochester, New York where we still reside today.

After years of partnership Harold retired and Angelo Papia and his wife Theresa became sole owners of Griffin Manufacturing. Years later the Papia children became involved in the business and showed the same dedication and perseverance as the day Griffin Manufacturing was started. Today, the Papia family still owns and operates Griffin Manufacturing Company.

Our products are made to the highest specifications, priced competetively for consistent savings, and fully backed with the Griffin Manufacturing unconditional guarantee. We are committed to giving you, our valued customer, the best products, prices and services.

From our family to yours, we thank you for your loyalty and your business.
