About Swenson Shears
For over 50 years, Swenson Shear has been supplying the Metal Construction industry with quality and innovative metal-cutting tools. Founded in 1959 by Ralph Swenson, the company started out small with simple, yet effective shears to ease the process of cutting common exposed-fastener panels.
In keeping pace with today’s ever-growing industry, Swenson Shear now offers a larger product line of unique tools to cut hundreds of different metal panels offering a quick and efficient method to shear not only exposed-fastener panels, but also concealed-fastener, stone-coated steel and other metal shingles, shake, trim and soffit.
Though the Swenson Shear of today has evolved since the 1950s, the original quality of Ralph Swenson’s tools has never been compromised. Still family owned and run, our products have been implemented in shops and on jobsites all over the United States, Canada and overseas.
