Rose Creek Anglers, Inc.

When we transferred production of our programming cables from an outside vendor to our in-house production, Metric Tool provided the most critical part of the solution.  Their staff worked with me in the contact design process which greatly reduced our manufacturing costs.  Metric Tool places a higher value in their relationships with companies than with monetary expectations.  Since the time of the programming cable project, they have provided a great deal of die design advice.

“Metric Tool & Stamping has been supplying us with precision micro-stampings for our electronic control assembly for more than twelve years. Their stampings are always very precise…especially in the critical areas of the part. For example, they produce a complex insert stamping on one of our switch lead frames that they consistently hold to within .0001. Metric is one of the best tool houses in the business.”
