They are the people they employ, the products they sell and the passion to serve there customers that emanates from both.
Laguna Tools was born in Laguna Beach, California, out of a desperate need to find safe, quality and precise woodworking machines for Torben Helshoj’s custom woodworking shop in Laguna Canyon. The tools that his partners used did not meet the high standards that Torben had used in Denmark, where he earned the Queen of Denmark’s Silver Medal in woodworking.
Armed with the experience from his four-year furniture making apprenticeship Torben returned to Europe with his business partners to purchase machines that would improve the quality of cuts and improve inefficiencies.
Laguna Tools forged a partnership with Robland Machines International to import high-end, superior quality woodworking machines and over the next decade the company became the number one importer of combination machinery in the US.
Now, over three decades later, Laguna Tools is still a corporation with the same values of quality, accuracy and safe products and that also focuses on their customers and their needs.
They do everything with one goal in mind — to help there customers build personal success stories.
