Lindor Tool's success came about form the hard drive and determination of Tom Johnson. Tom's knowledge for the industry started while he was working for Milltown Machine and Tool for his parents.
In the early 80's, Tom went to work for Century Tool located in Brooklyn Center, MN to gain additional experience outside of his parents's business. It was during this time when he worked days for Century Tool and freelanced at night in his home garage as a machine shop, striving to start his own company.
In 1986, Tom's success had flourished and Lindor Tool moved into it's first commercial building on Hwy 8 in St. Croix Falls, WI. By 1990, with the growth of business, Lindor Tool was able to buy land and build a new commercial building. After 5 years in the new building, they had already outgrown it and expanded to the size we are today.
In 1983, Lindor Tool started as a regular job shop, machining parts per print. It wasn't until the move in 1986 where the production of 2nd operation fixtures and tooling came about for the plastic molding industries in the surrounding area's.
During the early 90's, Lindor Tool ventured into operated assisted assembly fixtures using Pneumatics with PLC Logic controllers. In the mid 90's we began designing and building manual & hydraulic clamping fixtures for machining die cast aluminum parts, used in vertical and horizontal machining centers.
We work hand in hand with our customers from the begining with developing a concept, using CAD models to complete all design capabilities with our in-house designer, manufacturing and assembling the concept, delivering the final product and backing it up with our guarantee.
