I bought my first Trusco tool box in 2008, and the blue steel looks as shiny as it did when it was new. I chose a medium Trunk Tool Box as a place to store my pens, pencils, scissors, etc. My Trusco tool box has moved around the world with me and has always been placed proudly on my desk as soon as it’s unpacked. Perhaps it comes from my love of Lego as a child (and the need to constantly clean up pieces), but I like being able to scoop up all my office tools, pop them in a box, close the lid, and have them out of sight when they’re not in use.
Trusco makes their steel tool boxes in an impressive array of shapes and sizes. The two boxes we chose to carry are the smallest sizes in their lineup, which are well-suited for stationery, craft supplies, and other small storage. I personally also own an 11-inch ridged tool box, which I use to securely store my shoe shine kit. We are currently considering offering other models, which are more suitable for tools or larger items. Virtually all of Trusco’s steel tool boxes come in their signature metallic blue enamel, but a few are available in other colors.
We hope you like our stationery-sized tool boxes, but don’t be surprised if we soon announce some bigger sizes and maybe additional colors too.
