Company Need:

Made in America Bully Tools, Inc. (Bully Tools) has experienced a sales increase of 20% this year for its lawn and garden, farm, snow removal, home, and other specialty long handle tools. The company had to expand to keep up with growing demand.


“I am excited and proud to announce that through the close working relationship with Ohio Southeast Economic Development and JobsOhio, the planned 60,000 square-feet expansion to the current facility will soon come to fruition. Most importantly, this enables Bully Tools to maintain and keep its full operation in Ohio where we are proud to be celebrating our 25th year in operation.

I feel we have new partners at the local level as well as in Columbus that are serious about retaining and expanding Ohio manufacturing jobs! Their cooperation, help, and expertise has been a blessing and a true sign of concern and enthusiasm for the future development of Jefferson County and its citizens. No doubt, this will help Bully Tools to grow for years to come.” – Mark Gracy, President and Founder, Bully Tools

This expansion is possible with the support of a JobsOhio Grant.
