OTC Tools

OTC Tools – originally Owatonna Tool Company

OTC is a tool and equipment manufacturer founded in Owatonna, Minnesota by Godfrey Kaplan. OTC was selling a variety of mechanic’s tools to farmers and service stations by 1934 and when World War II broke out in 1939, the U.S. Army and Navy bought large quantities of OTC tools. By 1945, the company had doubled its staff.

By 1985, OTC had an extensive line of tools and systems for both OEM and aftermarket customers. That success led to its acquisition by Sealed Power Corporation (now SPX Corporation) of Muskegon, MI. In December of 2012 SPX was purchased by Robert Bosch GmbH and OTC became part of their Bosch Automotive Service Solutions division.

OTC is a global supplier of vehicle electronic diagnostic instruments; fuel systems service tools; special service tools; general purpose tools; pullers; heavy-duty tools; shop equipment and hydraulic components.

Bristol Automotive Parts, Inc carries over 300 OTC tools, including some hard to find discontinued tools still used on older vehicles. We continue to add more OTC products to our on-line store, If you don’t see what you need, contact us and let us know what you are looking for.
