Starting later this month, woodworkers will be able to purchase products like Laguna’s 14-, 16- and 18-inch band saws, 2 and 3hp cyclone dust collectors, hybrid cabinet saw and 3hp cast-iron top cabinet saw while they’re shopping for the hardware and other woodworking supplies sold through Rockler. Ann Rockler Jackson, CEO of Rockler Companies, and Catherine Helshoj, vice president of Laguna Tools, have indicated that additional products will follow throughout the year.
Both women also cited similar commitments to quality, customer service and innovation between the two companies, which have a combined 81-year history. “We are thrilled to offer the legendary quality of Laguna power tools to our woodworking customers, and to help Laguna expand their presence across the country,” said Rockler Jackson, while Helshoj’s statement was, “We’re very selective about our business alliances, and we’re proud to be affiliated with such an outstanding organization.”
