ESCO Tools founder dies

June 2, 2009

Albert T. Brennan, who purchased the Evans Supply Co. in Winchester, Mass., in 1975, later renamed the firm ESCO Tools, and built it into a leading welding end prep tool manufacturer for the power generation industry, has passed away at the age of 87 after a brief illness.

Mr. Brennan's approach to growing ESCO Tools was simple: listen to what the customers' problems are and if there are enough similar problems out there, develop products to solve them. According to Matthew Brennan, president, "My father's common sense philosophy of listening to end-user problems and developing innovate solutions is the cornerstone of our success."
