Do the Job Right.
Introduction
The Eastwood Company offers unique tools and supplies for repair, restoration, and modification of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Founded in 1978, Eastwood has been helping hobbyists and professionals "Do The Job Right" for over 30 years.

Eastwood recently introduced a line of affordable mig welders, tig welders, and plasma cutters, in addition to its soda blasting equipment, powder coating systems, and ceramic chassis paints. With an in-house R&D department and staffed with hobbyists, Eastwood constantly strives to find and develop new products to serve this market.

History

Eastwood started in a garage in suburban Philadelphia in 1978, with the founder, Curt Strohacker, selling buffing wheels and compounds with tiny 1/4-page ads in automotive magazines. Today, the company staff works out of a distribution and headquarters facility in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, mailing millions of full-color catalogs annually, and running the Eastwood.com e-commerce website

The first Eastwood catalog featured eight black and white pages of metal finishing equipment. By the early 1980s, the continued success took the catalog mailing operation into a professional list house. It reached 5,000 names by 1981 and kept growing. In addition to catalog marketing, Eastwood sold its products directly at selected car shows. 

Expansion & Growth

By 1984 and 1985, company ads would appear in more than fifty publications, including Hot Rod, Car, Craft and Popular Mechanics . The catalog prospered as well, growing to 96 pages with a four-color cover by 1986.Circulation reached more than 100,000 auto restorers, who received six issues per year.

By the end of the 1980's, the Eastwood customer file for custom and automotive restoration enthusiasts easily passed the half-million mark.

Products

Eastwood's assortment has grown to include over 5,000 products, including rust preventatives, specialty coatings, paints, chemicals, powder coating, welding and metal fabrication equipment, pressure blasters, and more.

The Eastwood MIG 175- Works the same on your old rusted out Jalopy or your priceless European sports car. The guys over at The Creative Workshop are putting their welder through the paces on some pretty cool high-end projects!
