Humble beginning:

After a few bad years of peach crops in 1968-69', the Brenda family had to start over from scratch.  The family sold the farm and opened up Valley Tool & Manufacturing on Santa Fe Avenue in Hughson.  The entire facility was only about 1000 square feet.  Valley Tool began as a tool sharpening business for bay area machine shops and over the next decade began to do bid work for companies in the steel industry such as US Steel and Lockheed Martin.
