Affinity Tool Works Rebrands Core Product Line as BORA PortaMate and Expands with Acquisition of Centipede Tool, LLC

Del

Affinity Tool Works, LLC, a, privately-owned global tool company based in Troy, Mich., announces it is streamlining and rebranding its established product lines as BORA PortaMate to reflect one, cohesive category brand. The rebranding announcement coincides with the company’s acquisition of Williamsburg, N.M.-based Centipede Tool, LLC, manufacturer of the Centipede® Support System.

Under the new branding, PortaMate products and Centipede Tool’s work stations will be combined, along with the BORA Tool line, into BORA PortaMate as the main overarching brand for the company. Affinity Tool Works will become a separate division as the exclusive U.S. distributor for HTC, Tormek, Sjobergs and FISCH. The newly-formed brand will also include the launch of a new logo and a new website, www.boratool.com.

“BORA Tool carries significant recognition for consumers and in the marketplace as a trusted, reliable brand and the rebranding direction better defines our company to our customers in a crowded and competitive tool line space,” said Todd Gluski, Brand Manager for Affinity Tool Works and BORA PortaMate. “With the addition of Centipede Tool’s portable work stations to our product mix, BORA PortaMate expands our distribution channel both domestically, internationally and further establishes our position in the marketplace as a leading provider of innovative tools and accessories.”

“We’re excited to have found a partner that shares our vision for the potential of our portable workbench technology to support any task, anywhere,” said Keith Fyhr, co-founder of Centipede Tool, LLC. “With new models and accessories on the horizon, the Centipede® Support System will continue to become an even more essential portable work support companion on every job site and in busy woodshops around the world.”

Affinity Tool Works was established in 2006 as a manufacturer and distributor of tools and workshop accessories that serve a variety of markets including building and remodeling, do-it-yourselfers, industrial and woodworking. As the BORA PortaMate lines and popularity among both professional craftsman and hobbyists alike has grown over the years, so has its overall brand identity.
