About Rugg Manufacturing

Rugg began manufacturing wooden hay rakes in Montague, Massachusetts in 1842. Since that time, a full complement of domestically manufactured snow tools and lawn & garden tools have been added.

New ownership has been in place since October of 2013, and investments have been made in infrastructure to assure continued growth. The company will continue to focus on innovative and functional products for the home, yard and garden. Quality craftsmanship and dedication, put into Rugg products since 1842, are the foundation of a long and successful history.

Our product lines now exceed 100 snow and lawn & garden tools, which are distributed internationally. These include Rugg’s popular BACK-SAVER® bent handle snow shovels and lawn rakes, conceived by William Rugg to “put the bend in the handle and not in your back.”

With a product base ranging from the original wood hay rake through state-of-the-art ergonomically designed BACK-SAVER® tools, Rugg will continue to provide an expanding consumer base with new and more useful tools.

The company intends to capitalize on these as it expands current product lines, opens new markets and explores new opportunities.
