Marshalltown takes Trowel out of name

After 113 years in business, Marshalltown Trowel Co. has changed its name to Marshalltown Co. The company’s foundation has been built with quality brick and finishing trowels, but has grown to include many other types of tools. Today, its 231-page catalog displays more than 2,000 tools, with less than a third of those being trowels.

Marshalltown is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of construction hand tools used with brick, concrete, drywall, plaster, EIFS, tile, flooring, paint and wallpapering. Brands include Marshalltown, QLT by Marshalltown, Embee by Marshalltown, and Nu-Pride. The company operates manufacturing facilities in Marshalltown, Iowa, and Fayetteville, Ark.
