JET began as a small dealer of manual chain hoists and trolleys; sold from a single hardware store in Tacoma, Washington. Over the years, JET has carried everything from electric chain hoists to air hoists. Beginning in the 70's JET introduced a full line of industrial air tools and material handling products which included paving breakers, backfill tampers and forklifts.
By the early '80s, as JET continued to grow, metalworking products became their core business line. 5 years later, JET launched its woodworking product category rounding out their product categories.
In the '90s, JET grew from being just an importer of high-quality machines and tools from the Far East to designing and manufacturing its own products in the Far East to its own specifications.
