Accessory manufacturer changes its name

Exchange-A-Blade, a manufacturer of exchangeable power tool accessories, changed its corporate name to EAB Tool Company and the marketing of its core line of exchangeable products under the brand name EAB.

The EAB acronym preserves the connection with the company's origins as a supplier and remanufacturer of exchangeable circular saw blades for the retail hardware and building supply markets, while allowing it to better represent its entire power tool accessories product line, according to the company.

"We're very excited about the new EAB," company founder and president Rob Forbes said. "This is an evolution of the brand. We continue to enhance the Exchange System that has allowed us to compete successfully against much larger competitors, while reinforcing our principles of delivering outstanding value and service, building customer and dealer loyalty, and striving for a more environmentally sustainable industry."

The company’s exchange system allows customers to buy a product and return it after use for credit towards their next purchase.

The company’s product categories include circular and diamond saw blades, abrasives, drill and SDS bits, hole saws, oscillating tool accessories, router bits, jig and reciprocating saw blades, screwdriver and impact bits.
