The L. S. Starrett Company - Athol, MA





The L. S. Starrett Company was founded 1880 in Athol, MA, which is still the Company’s World Headquarters.  The founder, Laroy S. Starrett invented the combination square in 1877.  He started the company to manufacture this product.

The company grew rapidly with a broadening product line, additional employees and penetration into an increasing number of markets.   Starrett has a history and reputation so rich and solid that the words “quality” and “Starrett” have become virtually synonymous. 

Today, the company employs about 1,800 people worldwide.  Most precision tools continue to be manufactured in the Athol plant, where it is not uncommon to see devoted generations of toolmakers with 30 or more years of experience.
