Travers was launched in 1924 by my great-grandfather, David Trevas. To serve metalworking shops, he established an overriding objective – deliver the tools they needed on time.
Many early customers were immigrants from Europe who had difficulty pronouncing his name Trevas and would call him Travers instead. He adapted, setting the stage for a “Travers Tool Company” that would continually adapt to the way our customers work.
His commitment to service and product supply was carried on by his son, my grandfather, Seymour Trevas and then later by my father, Barry Zolot. Barry developed our printed Catalogs and our quick ship warehouses, including our flagship location in Duncan, SC.
While Travers has grown over the years to provide all the metalworking products and services your company needs, as a family run business, we can still create individualized programs designed for you.
My team and I look forward to serving your needs for many years!
Bruce Zolot, President
