 Contractor Engineered®Tools & Products Designed & Manufactured by CE Tools

CE Tools Inc. designs and manufactures high-quality tools and supplies for contractors, carpenters, DIYers and others in the building industry. Third-generation contractor and entrepreneur Dan Lemcke founded CE Tools Inc. with the same values that brought him success in his long career in construction. 

One of the things that sets us apart from other tool and supply manufacturers is our focus on innovation. We are constantly developing new and innovative tools to meet the needs of our customers. For example, CE Tools Inc. was the first company to introduce the releasable chalk line, which allows users to release the hook from a distance, saving time and steps.

Our products are known for durability, ease of use and innovative features. If you are looking for tools that will stand up to the rigors of even the toughest job sites, our products are right for you. 

Three key commitments guide our company and our people – innovation, dependability and responsiveness.
