529 "FERREE’S TOOLS, INC." "1477 East Michigan Avenue, Battle Creek, Michigan 49014. Tel: (269) 965-0511. Toll-free: (800) 253-2261. Fax: (269) 965-7719. Email: ferreestools@aol.com. Web: www.ferreestools.com. Clifford Ferree, president.The company specializes in repair tools and supplies for band instrument repair technicians. Cliff Ferree has an excellent background in the repair field. After his graduation from the Conn Repair School in 1946, he established his own repair shop. This grew into a large retail business which was later sold due to the expansion of the tool business. In 1956 Ferree bought out the repair tool departments of both Conn and Leblanc. Using these tools as a nucleus, Ferree did some extensive redesigning and engineering and published his first complete catalog in 1957. The tool business moved to larger quarters in 1965, and in 1967 a large addition to that building was completed. In 1970, after becoming dissatisfied with foreign saxophone pads, Cliff Ferree designed several unique assembly machines, made complete sets of precision dies, and began manufacturing saxophone pads.Cliff Ferree attributes the rapid growth of his business to the fact that he was active in the repair field and realized the needs of other repair shops. The company is still constantly working on improvements and shorter steps to quicker, easier, and more efficient repair methods. This has resulted in the constant development of new tools. A person using these tools can complete difficult and complicated jobs more simply, accurately, and in much less time. All these special tools are precision made and quality controlled under the supervision of Steve Willbur and Curtis Ferree.The company was originally organized as Ferree’s Band Instrument Tools and Supplies, Inc., because Cliff Ferree thought that the name should symbolize the products. After 40 years, however, he felt that the “Ferree” name had become synonymous with quality band instrument repair tools and supplies and that customers would appreciate a shorter name; so the company name was changed to Ferree’s Tools, Inc.A large catalog is available free, upon request."
