Spear and Jackson Tools
Spear and Jackson are a gardening and hand tool supplier headquartered in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
In the 1740s, a form of the crucible steel process was discovered that allowed for the manufacture of new forms of better quality steel than had previously been available. This innovation spurred the growth of Sheffield as an industrial town and it was not long after, in 1760, that the foundations of Spear and Jackson were laid. Established by Wakefield merchant Alexander Spear, the second half of the name came from an employee, Sam Jackson, who started as an apprentice and rose through the ranks to become a business partner in 1830.
Several other companies have become part of the Spear and Jackson group since its inception. In 1985 they were acquired by Neill Tools, the manufacturer of the Ecplise range of hacksaws. Precision measuring specialisits Moore & Wright and respected trowel manufacturers WHS (William Hunt & Sons) and Tyzack are also part of the present day Spear and Jackson brand.
