Acme Tools, a major tool distributor and premiere retailer of tools and equipment, this week announced plans to build its fifth North Dakota store in Williston, N.D. The new store, scheduled to open in late summer 2013, will be the tenth Acme Tools retail location in the Upper Midwest.
The new store will feature 20,000 square feet of office, showroom and warehouse space. The store will specialize in power tools, concrete equipment, drywall tools, fasteners, generators, hand tools, scissor and boomlifts, trailers, tractors, trenchers, utility vehicles, skid-steer loaders, plumbing and pipe tools, material handling metal working tools, pressure washers, safety equipment and more.
“Northwest North Dakota and northeast Montana are important and growing markets for Acme Tools,” said Steve Kuhlman, vice president of corporate operations for Acme Tools. “We needed to expand to better serve our existing customers from around the state that are working in the Williston area and new customers and companies moving into the region. Our new store will feature tools and equipment to support the burgeoning building and construction industry in the Williston area and products for the oil and gas industry to support companies exploring and producing in the Bakken.”
Acme Tools has retail stores in Grand Forks, Bismarck, Fargo and Minot, N.D.; Bemidji, Duluth and Minneapolis, Minn.; and Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Iowa.
