Collins Company Collinsville CT.jpg

The Collins Company was founded in 1826 by brothers Samuel W. and David C. Collins and William Wells in South Canton, Connecticut (later renamed to Collinsville in 1828). Its industry was axes and edge tools and its headquarters remained in Collinsville, Connecticut. Following a flood in 1955, the business struggled to recover and was acquired by the Mann Edge Tool Company and The Stanley Works in 1966.
