Five Things You May Not Know About Helton & Co., Inc.

  1. HeltonJack and Gail Helton, founders of Helton & Co, Inc. began their journey in Arizona in 2003, selling miscellaneous items from their personal collections on eBay.  They became more successful at online retailing and in 2008, expanded to the Amazon Marketplace, and built their own website using the names HeltonTool and JacksCoolStuff.  They pride themselves in providing outstanding deals coupled with an excellent customer experience. They continued to grow and in early 2010, made the “big move” from a home-based business to a commercial office and warehouse. Their business and staff grew rapidly and in 2013, they outgrew their space and once again moved into a larger location. They currently have a staff of 12 employees!
  2. Although Helton & Co., Inc. started out selling small miscellaneous items, they have transformed their business into a large online presence. They proudly represent a wide variety of manufacturers including Makita, Hitachi, Johnson Level, and Senco Tools. In addition, they represent house ware giant World Kitchen which includes the Revere ware, Corning, Pyrex and Chicago Cutlery lines, along with emergency suppliers Wise Company, Stove in a Can, Lightning Nuggets, and Survival Cave.  They believe that their personal approach to customer service lends itself to all online merchandise; and that if they treat customer’s right, their customers will be delighted to shop with them time and time again!
  3. Last year, Helton & Co., Inc., was proud to be included in Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies. They ranked #1850 on a list of very prestigious companies.  The determining factor was their three year growth rate which skyrocketed to an impressive 206 percent.  Jack and Gail enjoyed several days in Washington DC and were honored with a beautiful award at the annual Inc. 5000 banquet.
  4. HeltonTool sets up shop every couple of months at the local “Prepper” and Gun shows. Not only does this give them a chance to get out in the community and represent their emergency provisions lines, but it also gives them the unique opportunity, as an online merchant, to meet their customers face-to-face.  They love talking with people one-on-one and finding out what their customers are  interested in and how they can better provide for their customer’s needs.  Visit them March 21-23, 2014, at the PrepperFEST AZ Expo at the Arizona State Fairgrounds.
  5. They love Golden Spoon Yogurt! It is practically company policy that they make a yogurt run weekly. There is always a sense of excitement when the menu and order list makes its way around.  Some of the staff favorites are St. Patty’s Mint with mini chocolate chips and Cheesecake with graham cracker topping! Delicious!
