Tom moved the business into a small building in Spooner, Wisconsin. T & T Tool then consisted of four employees and three customers. The company continued as a die building shop until 1985, when Steve Sundeen became a partner. Over the next five years the customer base grew to over 80 accounts and the focus shifted from die building to replacement parts for the wood products industry. The business grew to include 40 employees and moved into a new building in 1989. At that time 60% of the workload at T & T Tool was directed towards the engineered wood industry. As the business continued to grow and diversify, a second building (Plant 2) was built in 1996 and the staff reached 60 employees. The original building (Plant 1) now houses manual and cnc mills & lathes, inspection department, shipping & receiving, and all support staff. Large fabrications, the die department, welding, laser and press work takes place in Plant 2. Since 1990, the company has built welding fixtures for Caterpillar, and in 2001 began marketing this service to many other existing and new customers. From the late 1990’s and into the 2000’s, T & T Tool has continually increased its customer base and is constantly looking for new markets and opportunities.

Currently, T & T Tool provides services in many different areas including the wood processing industries, welding fixtures, custom machining, and in building specialty equipment and other products for our customers. T & T Tool has grown to 85 employees and has approximately 150 customers in 30 states, all provinces in Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. In addition to our own staff of engineers and designers, we work with contracting engineering firms. At times, in order to maintain our reputation for timely delivery to our customers, we outsource some machining. We have established vendor partners to provide painting, plating, heat treating, and various other specialty services. As we compete with companies from Europe, Canada, Asia, and the United States for work, we are continually improving equipment and processes and training our staff to stay on the leading edge of technology in order to produce high quality products at the best possible price. Located in northern Wisconsin, we occupy two facilities in Spooner’s Industrial Park (listed below). Fabrication is housed in one facility and our machining centers, along with our support staff, occupy the other.
