Meet Jonasz Marek, General Manager of Mumme Tools, Australia’s leading manufacturer of hand forged tools used in mining and building applications. Established in 1936 from founder Bill Mumme’s backyard, Mumme Tools has a long history in Australia that originates from humble beginnings. Today, Mumme Tools crafts more than 500 SKUs locally under one roof in Lonsdale, Adelaide and is widely regarded for the durability of its tools – particularly its non-sparking copper hammer and wide range of wrecking bars.
These tough tools go through as many as 32 forging and manufacturing processes, and are perfected by 21 craftspeople in their local workshop before hitting the shelf. This level of detail ensures Mumme Tools “stand the test of time” and gives miners and tradespeople piece-of-mind on the job at worksites in Australia and overseas. Mumme Tools have worked across eight decades with a local workforce to keep age-old trades like metal forging on Australian soil.
