The Ridge Tool Company was founded in 1923 in North Ridgeville, Ohio by William O. Thewes. The company invented the modern pipe wrench and trademarked the "Ridgid" brand name. Ridge Tool Company moved to Elyria, Ohio in 1943 where it still manufactures Ridgid brand tools today as a subsidiary of Emerson Electric.


Estimated Age: 

Based on the markings, this pipe wrench was made prior to 1966 when Ridge Tool Company was acquired by Emerson. So it dates to the 1940s or 1950s.
