We provide services to the Blow Mold and Thermoforming Industries. ATE offers mold engineering & design, mold manufacturing, mold inspections with the faro arm, mold repair and revisions, and mold delivery.

Customers include medical, automotive, agriculture, novelty products, toys, and outdoor products. American Tool specializes in large, deep, complex, intricate, and precise molds.

American Tool & Engineering differs from our competition by standing behind the quality of our product, attention to detail, customers own the mold design, sending mold makers to the customer for onsite repair, detailed progress reports sent weekly, and employee dedication and loyalty.
