More than 90 years ago Paul A. Sturtevant started his torque tool business. Sturtevant incorporated his torque wrench business in 1940. That same year, Frank Livermont incorporated the Richmont company. Our company holds more than 70 torque-related patents along with a string of industry firsts. We’ve been first in product development as well as the first torque tool manufacturer to be ISO 17025 certified and the first torque tool manufacturer to be certified ISO 9001.
Paul Sturtevant was always concerned that engineers and mechanics had the right tools. He was also concerned that those at the top of their craft should be recognized for their achievements. In the world of racing the driver gets the money and the glory. The lead mechanic also shoulders the burden for success. The best driver cannot win without a vehicle that gets him or her to the finish line.
