TruTech Tools Story

TruTech Tools was founded as a retirement hobby for James C. Bergmann (Jim Sr.) who worked with his son, James L. Bergmann (Jim, Jr.), in product selection, establishing a website and online advertising.

The company moved out of James Sr.’s bedroom to his converted garage, and in just a couple months to a rented house, then on to an office suite on Swartz Rd where it expanded twice over the years.

We are very focused on three groups of people: customers, employees, and vendors. It is only in serving these three groups that we will succeed. We strive to have the best customer experience and in providing clear communication at every step of the process.

When people ask “What do you make at TruTech?” We smile and say, “We make people happy!”.
