Jack Xu of Harvey Industries and John Economaki of Bridge City Tool Works

John Economaki recently detailed his decision to sell Bridge City Tool Works to Harvey Industries. Harvey Industries already licenses and distributes some tools BCTW internationally, so when John decided to sell the business, Harvey Industries was a natural fit.

You might recognize a few Harvey Industries tools – their Turbo T40 Lathe and Gyro Air G700 dust collector. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what these two companies cook up tool-wise. It’s also likely you already have some Harvey Industries tool in your shop, as the company does OEM work for a few different brands.

Here’s more from the press release:

After 35 years of running Bridge City Tool Works, John Economaki, iconic designer of heirloom quality woodworking hand tools, has decided it’s time to step down and hand over the reins to his friend and Chinese licensing partner, Jack Xu, CEO of Harvey industries, Ltd.
