Tooling Tech Group (TTG) announces it has broken ground on a 21,000 sq. ft. expansion of its Washington, MO location at 423 W-W Industrial Park Drive where it produces tooling for the die cast and aerospace industries. The expansion, expected to be operational by 3rd quarter of 2020, will bring the total manufacturing space to 61,000 sq. ft. at this location.
“This expansion will provide us the additional support needed to serve our expanding customer base,” said Dave Graves, TTG Die Cast division president. “We will have more capacity as well as the ability to meet the unique tooling requirements associated with large tonnage presses.”
The additional space will include two new 60-ton bridge cranes and a new large double column bridge mill with a 70,000 lb. capacity. The company anticipates that it will be hiring about 25 new employees at this location over the next 5 years, mostly for skilled trades positions such as die mechanics, die technicians and machinists.
This TTG division is recognized for its die cast tooling, aerospace tooling, precision machining and laser die repair capabilities. It has received a Boeing Performance Excellence Award in either the gold or silver category for nine of the last 10 years.
