Hultafors Group continues its expansion in the U.S. with Martinez Tool Co.

Martinez Tool Co. is pleased to announce the launch of a redesigned 16 in. x 24 in. All-Titanium Framing Square. This new framing square complements Martinez Tool Co.’s full line of framing and finish hammers and specialty tool product offerings.

Founded in 2015 and based in Merced, California, Martinez Tool Co. has grown rapidly by specializing in Made in the USA premium tools for the professional tradesman. Martinez Tool Co. most recognized products are the built and customizable high-quality titanium hammers marketed direct to the consumer on the Martinez Tool Co. webpage and through a select number of domestic and international dealers.

The new titanium framing square incorporates precision laser-etching, grade five titanium, intricate scribe markings at 1/8 in. increments, deep laser engraved measurement markings, precision-etched stair gauge settings for scribe marks, and an engraved decimal conversion table in imperial and metric measurements. These large titanium framing squares come with and without scribe marks. They are built to withstand hardline construction demands of the professional consumer and the intricate measurement requisite of the manufacturing industry.

Hultafors’ recent acquisition of Martinez Tool Company (October 2022) has given Mark Martinez the power to draft and design new tool prototypes and launch long-awaited projects—the large framing square is one of them.

“The addition of the new framing squares has contented a demand that has been prevalent with our supporters for some time. I started my tool design endeavors in the 1990s after having been a carpenter all my life. My tool conceptualizations will always be centered on quality, titanium metal engineering, and sleek sustainability,” says Mark Martinez.

Looking beyond the new framing square, Mark will continue to enhance the titanium tool line. Martinez Tool Co. utilizes titanium because of its efficient energy transfer metal; it is also 40% lighter than steel. The weight saving of the titanium is not to be underestimated if you swing a hammer a hundred times a day.

Martinez Tool Co. tools have become the premiere tool of choice on the job site. For more information on Martinez Tool Co.’s tool offerings, visit MTC, Titanium built tough.
