WHO WE ARE Exceeding our customers' expectations for over 45 years. Our founder, Carl Edquist, built the company on a simple philosophy: Combine the best people with the most current technology to create the best possible products for our customers. Carl's original vision still guides our company today. From humble beginnings as a tool and die shop in 1958, Carlson Tool Manufacturing has become the largest tooling and manufacturing facility of its kind in North America.

We hire skilled, dedicated people and give them the technology they need to lead the industry in speed, quality and flexibility. In fact, we've built an organization with a proven ability to get your products to market faster than the competition- in many cases up to 90% faster. Our customers consider us valued partners in the success of their business. When you work with Carlson, your needs and concerns are our top priority. No job is too large or small, and each customer is equally important. No matter how high your expectations, at Carlson our job is to exceed them.
