We are a second generation family owned and operated corporation that has been a manufacturer of High Speed Steel products since 1961. Our area of specialization is the cutting, shaping, pre-grinding, heat treating, and finish grinding of premium grades of flat High Speed Steel (and Tool Steel). Our versatility is processing the steel into semi-finished and finished cutting tools, precision ground blanks, and special cutting tools to meet our customer’s requirements and specifications.
Our employees are the real foundation of our company. We take care of them, we treat them as family, and we focus on a complete team effort in all aspects of our business.
Our goals are to continuously improve our work team, operations, equipment and facilities, and to provide prompt answers to our customer’s needs.
We have built on our technical expertise in High Speed Steel and we want to exceed the speciality materials and service requirements of our customers.
