Matco Tools is a manufacturer and distributor of quality professional automotive equipment, tools and toolboxes. The Matco Tools product line now numbers more than 13,000 items. Matco Tools is a subsidiary of Danaher Corporation, a Fortune 500 company and key player in several industries, including tools, environmental and industrial process and control markets. Matco began operation in 1946 and, since 1979, we have sold our products directly to professional mechanics, enthusiasts, and those who value quality tools through a network of independent franchised mobile distributors. Our franchisees are easily recognized in their white trucks bearing the familiar Matco logo. Today, Matco distributors operate in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.

*Earlier this year Jonathan attended the 2015 Matco Tools Expo in Orlando and was thrilled to be one of the 1,450 Matco Distributors featured on Antron Brown Matco Tools Top Fuel Dragster!

The new paint scheme will make some eyes bounce,” said Antron, who is driving a Matco-backed dragster for the sixth year. “It’s real cool to have all distributors’ names on it. Now, it’s not just the Matco car it will be the Matco distributors car going down the track with me. I’ve got all the support around that cockpit I need to go out there and win another championship.”
