About Slip Industries
We are truly a family business that started in 1988, when company founder Charles Herr began manufacturing and distribution of the “1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ (actual size) aluminum straightedge with welded ends and kerfed edges”, masonry wallscraper, and the asphalt t-lute. His daughter came with him in 1996. The company grew and finally incorporated in 1999. On January 1, 2004, Charyl became full owner so Charlie could retire. The business is in the process of being listed as a women owned business. Her son Sam does all the manufacturing and welding. Mr. Herr was the mastermind behind most of the tools that Slip Industries sells. Prior to launching the company, he spent 34 years on the road selling construction equipment to contractors. Through his dealings with contractors and their employees, he saw the need for certain tools that weren’t being made. In addition to offering a diverse line of stock tools, Slip Industries can custom-machine aluminum tools for specialized applications.
