Discover OUR STORY
Jesse D. Simmons, son of a share-cropper, was born and raised in Augusta, Arkansas. He learned what it was to work at a very tender age of twelve picking and chopping cotton. His first public job at age 16 lasting a span of 10 years, was in the local grocery store, thus instilling a foundation for his desire in later years to create his own recipe of an all purpose dry seasoning. After two and a half years with the Arkansas Game and Fish, he got into the tool business, first with Snap-on-Tools lasting almost twenty years and then he started his own business, Arkansas Tool Care, Inc. in 1990.
