The stroke of the hummingbird wings is continuous – like a Mobius strip – which is the symbol of infinity. Hummingbirds are emblematic for their vigor, energy and propensity to do work.

The hummingbird is capable of the most amazing feats despite its small size. It is universally liked and fascinating to watch because of its ability to move its body swiftly, change direction quickly and smoothly, seemingly gliding from one place to another with its ability to fly great distances tirelessly.

All of these traits are brought to life in our State Tool signature symbolizing swiftness, resiliency, balance and strength that continuously allow us to always live up to expectations. We pride ourselves in being able to move quickly and change direction instantly. You have probably never seen a hummingbird that wasn’t busy, or one resting on its laurels, and these traits exemplify our company philosophy.

The State Tool & Manufacturing logo contains classically clean letters to convey a solid and stable company, an efficiently engineered and timeless look. This is a purposeful contrast to the lively, organic and friendly portrayal of the hummingbird.

Color completes our story. The green symbolizes growth, friendliness and freshness while the red accentuates energy, desire and strength. And the brown represents our secure company, rooted in the past, durable and lasting.
