Duluth Trading Co. was founded in 1989 by two brothers in the construction field who noticed workers hauling their tools by tossing them into a messy pile in cast-off buckets. The brothers were inspired to come up with a better way, and invented the Bucket Boss, a heavy-duty PVC-coated organizer with pockets to neatly store and give quick access to all your tools, which fit over the edges of a bucket for easy carrying. The product line has grown over the years, but the company remains committed to offering top-quality products which pass the test of real tradesmen in the field. The company now carries a full line of tough work and outdoor apparel for men and women, including its top-selling Longtail t-shirts, with an extra three inches of fabric in the back to solve the plumber’s crack dilemma. They also sell workshop and tool accessories, gifts and gear.
