ITW Red Head & ITW Buildex
ITW Red Head is America's largest designer and manufacturer of fastening products used in concrete and steel construction. Since the invention of the original "self-drill" anchor in 1910 and the first "powder-actuated tool" in 1947 Red Head has led the industry with time saving, high performance products.
We pride ourselves in our commitment to quality, and our position as a motivated and progressive company dedicated to the high standards our customers have come to know and expect.
Established in 1967, ITW Buildex, a division of Illinois Tool Works, continues to evolve in its role to manufacture and provide innovative, value-added fastening solutions to the global construction market.
We take pride in our commitment to operational excellence, superior service and new product development that has guided the company through decades of growth by meeting the ever-changing needs of the commercial construction industry. Focusing on the needs of our end-users enables us to customize our product offering and service based on their requirements.
