I use to be one of their sales reps in the 90's & 2000's.
The company was originally called Power Tool Specialists out of Connecticut. They used the name Tradesman Power Tools on all of their bench top power tool products. We sold to retailers & wholesalers of all kinds throughout the states.
Rexon in Taiwan, who made most of their tools bought 51% of the company. They continued on for awhile until Rexon wanted to give Lowe's an exclusive so they fired all of their reps and quit selling their customers around the country. Apparently that did
not work because Lowe's does not have Tradesman now.
Rexon also made products for Delta, Craftsman, & Ace to name a few. I wish I knew what Rexon did with the company. I see a few of their tools on ebay on occasion.
Hope that fills in a few blanks.
