About Harbor Freight Tools
Harbor Freight Tools is different. We’re not your typical retailer. We’re actually a retailer and branded tool producer rolled into one. We’re a team of high-achievers, who have a passion for excellence and continuous improvement and obsess about getting things done. We’re also equally committed to doing the right thing and giving back to our community. We’re allergic to bureaucracy, extra layers of management and politics. And for us, collaboration is the golden rule. We’re a 35 year-old, $3.5 billion company – on pace to $7.5 billion in the next few years – with the energy and enthusiasm of a start-up. We have over 650 stores nationwide and are opening a new one every week. If you’re a leader with your ego in check, if you know what it means to be an open-minded partner, if you aren’t afraid to get into the weeds to learn the Harbor Freight way and join our history making enterprise, then we’d love to talk to you.
