about us

Founded in 2012 by Jim Chase, Koken USA began sharing in the tool marketplace about an excellent product line of tools that was new to North America. He was so impressed by their quality and engineering that he claimed, "If we can just get them (Koken sockets) into the hands of the consumer, they will never buy anything else."

First with the introduction of Koken's broad line of standard sockets and tools, followed by their offering of custom sockets to meet specific customer requirements, Koken quickly developed a reputation for quality tools and outstanding customer service in North America.

Today, through our strong partnership with our exceptional authorized distribution network of tool professionals, we provide high quality tools to the automotive, aerospace, medical and general manufacturing industries throughout North America. In addition, we provide car, motorcycle and bicycle enthusiasts alike with top-of-the-line sockets and ratchets for their specific applications. With our recent expansion into a new 5000 square foot facility with thousands of parts in stock we are even better able to offer our customers timelier access to the Koken tools that they need and love.


As Koken continues its pursuit to provide customers with high quality tools at a fair price, we wish to convey our sincerest appreciation to our customers for their continued support, feedback, and friendship. Best wishes to you and God bless,

- Koken USA
