Four years ago we spotted the Trusco Toolbox on one of our favorite designer's website and, fully enamored, immediately made a sourcing mission of securing it for sale at volume. After much effort we found a Japanese distributor willing to work with us via an export agency; it added cost and processing time but it got the toolboxes to our shores. Our passion for Trusco spread and the toolbox became one of Hand-Eye's best-ever sellers.
We kept up an effort throughout this time to more efficiently source and import: looking into other arrangements, even trying air freight to keep the supply flowing smoothly. Finally, late last year, with the help of our city – Thank you, Mitsu & Portland Development Commission – we established a direct connection with the Trusco manufacturing company.
Now that the contracts are complete we are very excited to update our Trusco page with new prices - an average of 40% less than before and to announce that pre-ordering is open! Anyone placing an order by February 28th is guaranteed a spot in of our first shipment!
