Our History

As told by Milton R. Sheen IV

A Family Business

The Suncoast Tools story began in 1963. While my grandfather, Milton R. Sheen, Jr., ran the Milton Roy Manufacturing Plant, he decided to start a new business to supply tools. So, in 1963, my grandfather and I started Suncoast Tools. In 1995, I purchased the company from my grandfather.

Milton IV stands in front of a trade booth in 1997.

Suncoast was built on the traditional distributorship model. Most salespeople were on the road or calling on customers at their places of business (we were in a time before the Internet.) Nevertheless, the company grew year-over-year and even survived the recession of the 1990s. Suncoast kept seeing moderate growth, and by the year 2000, we had 12 employees and two remote offices in Florida.

"It's Time For a Reset"

It was like we closed the old company and opened a new one!

The Recession of 2007-2008 hit us hard, as it did many businesses. Our sales plummeted over 75% in just one month! This downturn was a massive hit to our profitability, and we were on the verge of going out of business. We knew we needed to adapt. We decided to close the remote locations and reduce our workforce to a couple of essential employees. I remember after we came back from the weekend of layoffs, I said to the remaining staff, "You are the only ones left, and it's time for a reset." This decision was one of the best I have made. It was like we closed the old company and opened a new one!

I was determined to make technology work for us. To boost our efficiency and lower our overhead, we developed our internal software automation system and eventually integrated it into our website. To reflect the industry-leading company we were determined to be, we updated our brand image, including our logo & marketing materials. We had "reset" and were now ready for business in a new technological era where adaptability and speed are crucial. In the last 15 years, we've continued to expand our software automation systems and even hired an in-house software developer. As a result, we continue to innovate, grow, and develop ground-breaking solutions that will provide you with better service at competitive prices.

Investing In Technology Has Paid Off

In 2020 and the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies like ours struggled because of not being able to make in-person sales calls. As a result, customers turned more and more to the Internet to find what they needed. Fortunately for us, we were already way ahead of the game. Now at the end of 2020, we're beside ourselves. This year alone, we've experienced a vast increase in sales while the rest of the industry is seeing declines.

In The End, It's Still About You

…we have evolved into a rock-solid company, prepared for the unexpected.

It takes grit to run a successful company such as ours. It's been a long road, and it hasn't always been easy. But, with our determination and willingness to adapt, we have evolved into a rock-solid company, prepared for the unexpected. We are technologically advanced and adaptable.

We look forward to many more years of continued service. We appreciate the privilege to serve you, to help make your job easier, and to prove with each sale that we're a valuable partner in your success!
