The Toughest Tool Boxes Just Got More Powerful

Posted by Nicole Gennarelli

If you want power, you want Matco.

As the traditional automotive shop evolves, so does storage and tool boxes that technicians use on a daily basis. That’s why Matco’s Power Toolboxes are different from the rest.

Because Matco knows it’s not just about power; it’s about how you use it, where you put it and when you need it.

All Matco Toolboxes 25" and deeper now come with power and have exposed USB and grounded outlets right in the front, making it easier to plug in tools and personal devices while providing optimal work space on top. Designed with the technician in mind, a second built-in power strip is available in the side drawer.

The Power-Integrated Toolboxes come with the same flexible options and add-ons that allow customers to design their own toolbox to fit different spaces and needs. With several color and trim options, a Matco toolbox is a reflection of individuality. Matco is the only mobile tool company that currently offers the complete power storage solution, starting with an entry-level toolbox continuing through the line of hutches and side lockers. This extensive offering makes Matco’s toolboxes the most obtainable for every tech in the industry.

“With technology advancing at a rapid pace, we want to make sure our products always allow consumers to work effectively and efficiently,” said John Green, Vice President of Marketing and e-Commerce for Matco Tools. “Having multiple power sources for technicians to constantly charge devices and tools maximizes their output. These new boxes are practical, flexible and designed with the technician in mind.”

At Matco Tools, we build trust and craftsmanship into each storage unit assembled at our Jamestown, New York facility. Each Matco toolbox features our T-shaped center shelf that is fully welded to all sides for brute strength and total stability.

From the standard 4s to the ultimate 6s, Matco has the industry’s best toolbox for every technician. And now, with the addition of power, Matco toolboxes just got even better.

Posted by Gina Zimmerman

Matco Tools is always working to offer their customers the highest quality tools and equipment products. We know that our customers rely on these products to do their jobs day-in and day-out. One of the categories that Matco is most proud of is our toolbox offering. We’re very excited to highlight two toolboxes: the JSC450 and JSC480.

JSC450 / JSC480 Toolboxes

Why the JSC450 / JSC480?

At Matco Tools, we’ve been looking for ways to provide customers with an entry-level toolbox that has the quality that they’ve come to expect from our company. This idea came from our toolbox plant in Jamestown, NY, a factory known for exceptional product development as well as production. This is a place where the emphasis is on quality over quantity and where functionality comes first.

So just who are these toolboxes made for? They can be used by anyone! Whether you are a new automotive technician, a DIY mechanic in your garage or a specialty mechanic, these toolboxes cover a wide user base.

The Features

JSC480 in Sapphire BlueThe JSC450 / JSC480 toolboxes have something that our other models do not. In comparison to carts of its size, this incredible product actually has a higher overall load capacity. This is a huge benefit, and to make it even sweeter, it is coupled with a longer warranty, which includes one year on the cart and lifetime on slides, caster and lock.

These toolboxes are very strong and built to last. With strong, fully welded columns in each corner, this product is designed for the long haul. On top of that, the upgraded stainless steel top not only has an aesthetic appeal but a functionality advantage since it doubles as a durable work surface.

The Design

Our designers at Matco Tools have gained a large amount of experience in the creation of our previous products. Brooke Colley, a designer for Matco Tools is one of many associates with that world-class knowledge. She has been working in sheet metal design since 2000 and with our toolbox plant since 2005. It is people like her and so many others who have come together to create the best products the tool market has to offer.

The overall concept in designing the JSC450 / JSC480 was to create a smaller toolbox with durable functionality at an affordable price. Several team members met and brainstormed to come up with the concept for the designs and after several discussions, they agreed upon the perfect fit for the Matco Tools brand.

Matco’s team of designers has a process that always results in success. It’s obvious that after many years of experience, they have the design and creation of their exceptional products down to a science. We’ve found that by having many members of the team involved at the front end of design, we can create great products that never cease to amaze our customers.

The Final Touch

Whether you are looking to replace an old toolbox, or you simply need to upgrade for more space, the JSC450 / JSC480 toolboxes could be just what you’re looking for. Matco Tools takes product development and production very seriously and is always looking to offer our customers the highest quality of products and these toolboxes are just another example.
