The Side-Rite Story

Side-Rite Tool Co. is an American tool company founded by Thomas J. Menges, President of TM Custom Construction Company. Based in Lexington, KY, Thomas has been in the building industry for 17 years.  He has seen a consistent need for innovative tools that will help eliminate human error, while still maintaining ease of use, and meeting manufacturer's recommendations. After many long hours in design, he developed a tool that will aid contractors everywhere.

Thomas and his wife Arren, have three
daughters, and own a small hobby farm in the beautiful rolling hills of Lexington.


It's important to us that we do our part to help create American jobs. That's why all of our tools are made right here in the USA.
