Founded in 1878 by George W. McGill, the holder of several office products patents, McGill is one of the oldest continuously operated companies in Illinois. For the first 20 years of its life, McGill sold ticket punches (similar to the hand held paper punches it makes today) to the railroads. Around 1900, the railroads asked McGill to use its metal fabricating skills to develop coin changers. And to this day, McGill’s product line of coin changers remains a solid part of its business.
By the early 1990’s in order to further develop new products and explore new markets, the logical progression grew into the field of office products with an array of three hole punches, paper drills and specialty paper punches. Today, McGill is known as providing quality heavy duty paper tools for the office environment with distribution by the largest outlets of office products.
Soon after, in 1993, the craft market began to grow with a new demand for punches in a different market. Punches were then created in a variety of shapes and sizes with a reputation of the best designs. The growth in craft stores was exponential, as products began to be seen at national chains and independent craft stores. This opened the door to develop additional creative related products for the craft industry, like other papercraft tools, and creative kits and accessories.
Today with worldwide distribution, the McGill name is synonymous with quality, innovation and great designs that serve the office, school, craft, and industrial and specialty markets.
