Our Legacy

Who We Are

Bucket Boss began back in 1987, when two men working on a jobsite in Duluth, Minnesota found it easier to carry their tools in 5-gallon buckets. They created the first “Bucket Boss” organizer made of canvas that fit securely around their buckets. Today, Bucket Boss carries over 100 different products that organize and hold tools in the strongest, most efficient ways. For 30 years, we have prided ourselves in creating durable products that can withstand many years of wear and tear. From our American Field Testers proving concepts in the field, to key technical upgrades in materials and design, we strive to stay ahead of the pack.
