J. Walter Becker founded IDEAL in 1916 and made a promise that is still an important part of the way they operates today: "An IDEAL product will provide a value greater than the price paid for it. Service is a part of the product." Becker's foundational principle represents IDEAL’s everyday commitment to their customers; meaning they are proud of the way they do business.
IDEAL is one of the world's leading manufacturers of quality tools, accessories, and supplies, proudly serving the electrical, construction, maintenance, data communications, aerospace and original equipment markets. Over 6,000 items make up the IDEAL family of products. Their leading brands have found their way into the tool bags of trade professionals, including Can-Twist™ Wire Connectors, Tight-Sight® Clamp Meters, Yellow 77® Cable Pulling Lubricant, and T®-Stripper Wire Strippers to name a few.
Although IDEAL is a global, growing, multi-national corporation creating some of the world’s most innovative technology, at their heart, they are still a family business.
