Our History

Bully Tools has been proudly producing 100% Made In The USA products since 1994, starting out in a small 1500 square foot building space in Pittsburgh, PA after being founded by our President and CEO, Mark Gracy.

"It all started with one product idea 25 years ago. I was involved in developing a unique shingle remover that I thought I could sell. My problem was I had little funding and no one to do the manufacturing. One baby step lead to another, there was a lot of trial and error, and I basically had to learn how to manufacture products without a playbook. Many long hours of work and sleepless nights but somehow I was able to survive another day. I had quit my job as a building inspector for the City of Pittsburgh and took my small life savings and rolled the dice. I couldn’t have done it with the support of my high school sweetheart, best friend and wife. There is an old Kenny Rogers Song “She Believes in Me.” It reminds me of her every time I hear it."

In 2006, Bully Tools built a new factory in Steubenville, Ohio, about 35 miles west of Pittsburgh. Although it was a bittersweet move from hometown, Pennsylvania’s tax structure, workers compensation program, utilities cost, and political climate were unfriendly to manufacturing. Ohio was very accommodating and helped finance the expansion with the promise of job creation, and Bully Tools quickly exceeded our commitment and paid back the state in eight years instead of 15.

Finally today, Bully Tools now manufactures over 100 top-quality products found in thousands of hardware stores all across the United States. You may view our products here!
