In 1933, National Tool & Manufacturing was established in Kenilworth, New Jersey to offer quality mold components for the mold making industry. In 1978, Midwest Steel & Services was established in Illinois, offering mold base steels and grinding services. Early in 2010, over 75 years from the original founding, Midwest Steel & Services was merged with National Tool & Manufacturing, and the newly combined companies became "NTM". The new NTM, offers customers from a wide variety of industries a one-stop source of custom machined steel plates, custom mold bases, mold components as well as a large inventory of mold steels.
Our business is built on fast response from upfront engineering and estimating to custom machined steel plates and mold bases. Our slogan, "turning steel into enhanced productivity", offers our customers the option of minimal or complete machining and assembly to best match their in-house capabilities and work load. We accomplish this with a talented and experienced staff, investing in the latest innovative production equipment and tied together with powerful software to provide speed, accuracy and consistency.
