Count On Tools enters 30th year in business

Jan 04, 2021

Count On Tools, Inc. (COT) is pleased to announce that the company will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2021. 

In 1991, Curt Couch became a U.S. distributor of PB Swiss Tools, formerly known as PB Baumann Hand Tools. This business led to his further research in the surface mount technology and electronics manufacturing industry and, ultimately, the creation of COT.

Since then, COT has transitioned successfully into minority status with Mrs. Renee Couch as President & CFO and Curt Couch as acting Vice President. Mrs. Couch stated, “We believe this strategy moves us towards additional opportunities in new areas of contract manufacturing and industry protocols to mitigate minority businesses, both civilian and government.”

COT manufactures high-quality, low-cost nozzles and associated components for the SMT & PCB assembly industries for more than 25 years. Proven engineering expertise, coupled with a commitment to manufacturing excellence and investment in the very latest production equipment, ensures that innovation and competitiveness is applied to COT’s extensive product range.

Couch added, “Celebrating 34 years of marriage and 30 years of busines has always been a JOINT effort. Vision and creativity, along with perseverance and resilience have been the key principals for our sustainability.”

Count On Tools continues to offer original rework services as well as custom tooling/nozzle design services and new nozzle offerings. Each year, the company produces thousands of custom nozzle designs for an array of components, from LEDs to connectors and switches.
