Tooling Tech Group (TTG), the second largest tooling provider in the United States, recently announced plans to expand in Washington, Missouri. The 21,000 sq. ft. expansion represents $4.5 million in investment and is expected to create 25 new jobs in the region.
“Throughout these challenging times, Missouri has remained strong and resilient,” said Missouri Governor Mike Parson. “Seeing companies like Tooling Tech Group expand in our state gives us hope and confidence as we move forward on the path to economic recovery.”
TTG’s Washington division specializes in engineer-to-order die cast tooling for the automotive and outdoor products industries, including extensive die repair and laser welding capability. Also known for their aerospace tooling and precision machining performance, the company has been recognized by Boeing for supplier excellence in the Gold or Silver classification nine of the past ten years.
“This investment will provide much needed space for our growing business, while expanding our capabilities in tooling for high tonnage presses,” said Dave Graves, TTG’s President. “This expansion exemplifies our commitment to operational excellence and providing exceptional service to our current and future customers.”
TTG is also dedicated to the community, providing job opportunities and supporting local events. They actively promote manufacturing in the area and partner with schools to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a career in the manufacturing industry.
“The City of Washington is very pleased to learn about Tooling Tech’s expansion plans,” said Washington Mayor Sandy Lucy. “In today’s economic climate it is very reassuring to know that one of our industries is willing to make investments in our community. We couldn’t be happier to have them as a partner.”
“We are thrilled to hear about Tooling Tech’s expansion project,” said Sal Maniaci, Washington Community and Economic Development Director. “Their commitment to growing in Washington and providing valuable jobs has always made them one of the region’s great industry partners. They have been an active and important member of the Washington community for nearly 40 years, and we look forward to their continued success for years to come”
