George Cluthé  founded the company in 1939, and eventually they were able to offer screwdrivers and many other moulded products such as tool-boxes, funnels, oilers, housewares, and furniture glides. Interestingly, the company didn’t always use the accent aigu (é) on the name on their tools. They were purchased by Onward Multicorp in the mid-1990’s, which then became Onward-Cluthé Hardware Products, with the motto, “We Don’t Just Mould Products, We Mould Relationships.”  Cute.  They’re still out of Kitchener, but no longer make tools so the Cluthé brand has vanished from the tool marketplace.
