A company’s true strength is derived from its foundation. At Cornwell, our foundation is made from pure steel. Founded in 1919 by Eugene Cornwell, Cornwell Quality Tools has been in business longer than any other mobile tool company. Cornwell’s guiding vision is to create quality tools that make us the choice of professionals.

While technology, demand, and tool architecture has changed, Cornwell has stuck to its core of producing quality products. We make quality tools so our franchise owners can proudly stand behind the products they sell.

Training & Support

At our Headquarters in Wadsworth, OH during a weeklong session, our training staff will teach you how to use our system and coach you on the tips and tricks of the business.

During this time we will give you a personal tour of our manufacturing facilities in Mogadore, OH. You will gain firsthand knowledge of the quality we put into our tools. We believe that while learning about Cornwell is essential to success in the business, we also provide training on sales and business management. This training will give you the tools needed to be the best business owner possible.

On the Road with Your District Manager
After your initial training, you will spend 10 days in your own territory with your District Manager riding alongside of you. Your District Manager will be able to coach you along the way so you are more comfortable in the drivers seat. Even after formal training stops, your District Manager is there to help. He has a vested interest in your success.

Additional Training Opportunities
We want to keep our dealers up to date about new products and new opportunities so they can stay ahead of the competition. There are always additional training opportunities through quarterly District Manager meetings and our annual Tool Rally. More important than the training itself is knowing there is a team backing you up.
