Share With:

Our latest Hub On The Road series video brings us to RIDGE Tool company to see the making of their iconic pipe wrench.

The world famous cast iron pipe wrench is started at the Urick Foundry in Erie, PA. We get the very first public look into this decades old manufacturing facility were the molten metals are poured into molds, sand is cast and robots work alongside dedicated employees with years of service.

From Urick the guys take their fresh wrench to Elyria, OH to RIDGID’s world headquarters and factory floor to finish the process of grinding, painting, assembling the plumbing and piping industries most iconic tool.

This video is a first ever look behind the scenes of this American made legend. We at MH thank whole hearteldy our partners and friends for welcoming us into their house and allowing us to make this video.

We sincerely hope you find this entertaining,

Team MH
