Active Tools was set up in 2003 to develop innovative products for rowers. The company grew out of a long established Industrial Design and Mechanical Engineering company whose management wanted to apply their expertise to the sport they loved.
All Active Tools products are designed on state of the art 3D CAD workstations and then prototyped in house using high-speed CNC machines. This approach enables innovative designs to be developed very quickly. Once the designs have been developed prototypes and first production samples are then put through extensive user evaluations and life testing.
