Advising BTC Global Sale to Snap-On Inc.
When Snap-On started it manufactured and marketed ten sockets that would ‘snap on’ to five interchangeable handles. This revolutionised the tool industry back in the 1920’s. For most of its time Snap-On was a tool company selling to vehicle repair technicians. These days they reach beyond the vehicle repair industry. Snap-On is a £3.4 billion company which trades on the New York Stock Exchange. It is headquartered in Wisconsin and trades around the world.
