Our History

In 1955 the Minnesota Tool & Die Association was founded by DeWitt Bills of World Aerospace. He gathered a group of peers whose mission it was to "Elevate the contract manufacturing industry in Minnesota to a high level of endeavor and accomplishment for the mutual benefit of all concerned." We continue to seek new ways to accomplish that mission for the benefit of our members and our industry.

Our Initiatives and Vision

We have built upon our achievements the past 60 years and have become the leading voice of the precision manufacturing industry in Minnesota. As an association we have introduced, lead and supported the initiatives and education that will keep manufacturing in Minnesota a strong and vital component of the state's economy including the:

  • Minnesota Manufacturing Coalition – Uniting 21 trade associations to leverage their resources to have a positive influence on the industry.

It is our vision that Minnesota will be the recognized world leader in precision manufacturing and related technologies.
