Goodson Acquires Goodtool

Dec 6, 2011

Goodson Tools & Supplies for Engine Builders, Winona, Minn., has acquired the assets and product lines of Goodtool Brake Service Tools & Supplies.

Goodtool Brake Service Tools & Supplies has been supplying brake service companies with replacement parts, cutting tips, silencers and more for brake lathes since 1996, according to a press release. With the acquisition, Goodtool’s product lines will be available as a brand from Goodson Tools & Supplies.

“It just makes sense. Bringing a line of brake tooling into the mix will give our customers even more ways to serve their customers,” said Dave Monyhan, Goodson sales manager.

Goodtool will begin operating under the Goodson name Jan. 1.

“Until then, it’s business as usual,” said Monyhan. “If a customer has bought from Goodtool before, Goodson will now be able to deliver the same quality products, plus a whole lot more.”
