NORSKE TOOLS REVIVES
TRADE-A-BLADE IN CANADA
fter a 30+ year hiatus, Norske Tools has
revived Canada's original exchange
system: Trade-A-Blade. Trade-ABlade entered the Canadian market in 1976.
Its founder is the architect of the system adopted
by multiple second movers. "We didn't want to
offer just another exchange system" explains GM
Bob Johnston, "We wanted to offer the original."
Trade-A-Blade is flourishing under new ownership. Their four-credit system is easy to administrate, they accept any
competitive blade in trade, and while some competitors are selling
re-manufactured used-blades, all Trade-A-Blade products are new.
"We recycle the steel and donate the proceeds to charity,"
explains Johnston, "For retailers who reject trade systems, we
offer all of our products under our non-tradable Norske' label.
When you are a customer focused enterprise it's important to let
the customer decide." Norske Tools has accumulated considerable
industry experience and is poised to disrupt the Canadian Power Tools Accessories industry
with their combination of innovation, quality, and service. Their senior leadership team has
over 75 years of experience and is backed by a large manufacturer. "We operate at the intersection of engineering and marketing. We leverage our technical and manufacturing expertise
to shorten lead times, guarantee quality, and develop first-to-market products. Our merchandising and product presentation are a testament to our experience, passion, and drive."
