ABOUT THE COMPANY

Harbor Freight Tools is a privately owned, high growth multi-channel retailer and leader in providing high quality tools at the lowest prices in the industry. The Company was founded in 1968 in a garage in North Hollywood, CA., initially selling industrial supplies. Harbor Freight changed course in the 1970’s when it started developing direct relationships with various tool manufacturers, essentially eliminating the middleman. Since then, the company has grown and leveraged these relationships.

Today, Harbor Freight is one of the country’s largest tool and equipment multi-channel retailers, with over 350 retail stores and a customer base of over 10 million, offering more than 5,000 tools and equipment items, including products marketed under such brands as Central Machinery, Chicago Electric, Pittsburgh, and Drillmaster. Harbor Freight Tools is a leader in marketing products directly to the consumer through its catalogues, website and company-owned retail stores.

MISSION

In 1968, Harbor Freight Tools had a mission to make it easier for working people to get the best value possible on top-quality tools they could trust. Now, more than 40 years later, that mission has made Harbor Freight Tools one of the largest tool and equipment multi-channel retailers, with over ten million customers taking advantage of their low prices and satisfaction guarantee.

 

EMPLOYEE PHILOSOPHY

Harbor Freight is committed to invest in and build “best practices” in everything from retail, to inventory, e-commerce, technology, and merchandising. As such, the company seeks out top-tier talent at all levels, looking for select high-energy professionals, who are creative problem-solvers and are seeking an environment that supports, nurtures and properly compensates talent and who have demonstrated a capacity to be top performers at their respective levels. Harbor Freight prides itself in having “large company resources with a start-up feel,” providing a collegial and collaborative culture dedicated to high achievement.

Harbor Freight supports and promotes people based not on politics, but on their relative contribution, skill set and accomplishments, and are dedicated to providing generous pay for performance compensation and long-term careers.
