About TTG

Our History of Growth

An Overview of
Tooling Tech Group Through the Years

Originally founded in 1982 as Tooling Technology, located in Fort Loramie, Ohio., the company quickly began growing both organically and through acquisitions.

In 1998 TTG, added Alpha Mold and Air City Models and Tools to its portfolio. These companies manufactured models, tooling and high-tech injection molds primarily used to create automotive interiors.

Then in 1999, the Edward D. Segen Company was purchased. Segen specialized in manufacturing machined tooling for the inline plastic thermoforming field, in addition to having a successful quick-change component division. Also, in 1999, Canal Pattern, a business in the highly skilled wood pattern and model field was added to make TTG a full-service tooling operation. 

In 2006, TTG bought Laser Die, a Grand Rapids, Michigan sales and engineering office to manufacture compression tooling, including one of a kind in-mold trim of fibrous materials. And in 2011, Tooling Technology Group purchased Fremont Plastic Mold Corporation, a leading manufacturer of blow mold tooling and secondary equipment. 

In the past few years, TTG has experienced extraordinary growth through many acquisitions. In 2015, it purchased Majestic Industries, a provider of progressive stamping dies and short run production, as well as G.H. Tool & Mold, specializing in die cast dies and aerospace tooling. 

Then in 2018, three more purchases were made to complement the company’s ability to provide design services and tooling across a range of applications. This included Century Tool & Gage, specializing in compression molds for producing composite components, Bel-Kur Automation (renamed TTG Automation), for secondary tooling, fixtures and automation solutions, and the Die Cad Group die design and engineering team. 

With the increasing focus on creating efficiency through automation, in 2019 TTG invested in the purchase of Alpha Integration, a provider of turnkey assembly solutions, automated assembly equipment and automated vision inspection systems. 

Since the acquisitions, TTG has continued to invest in its affiliate companies with expansions of the Majestic Industries, GH Tool and TTG Automation facilities as well as a new building for serving the Alpha Integration team. Additionally, there have been multiple equipment upgrades across all the facilities, which can be found in more detail via our news page.

The company now has more than 1-million combined square feet of manufacturing space and employs approximately 600 people in 12 facilities across Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Georgia and Tennessee as well as a sales office in China.  With sales of $191,000,000, it ranks as the largest provider of tooling in the United States.
