Paslode has been around since the 1930's and they were the first company to invent the pneumatic fastening tool. Through their innovative design they were able to become an industry leader and they have stayed at the vanguard of the pneumatic industry by keeping up with technology and improving design and functionality. They have designed a user friendly tool and are making it a point to keep doing so. Paslode was the first company to design and manufacture the cordless framing nailer in the 1980's and this again put them in the front running for fastening tools.
