Great Neck company has followed one rule since the production of the first hacksaw blade in 1919: "Manufacture a superior quality, dependable tool for a reasonable price."
In 1919, Samuel Jacoff, a tool and die maker living in Pittsfield, MA, started a hacksaw blade manufacturing business with the help and support of his wife Sarah. When fire destroyed their building in 1929, they merged with another blade maker, Great Neck Manufacturing. In 1941, they purchased a handsaw company and constructed a new plant in Mineola, NY where they remain today. By 1971, Sam and his four sons built GreatNeck in to a major force in the hand tool business by purchasing Buck Bros., a Massachusetts chisel company, and Mayes Brothers, a level company from Tennessee.
