Paul Rauch founded Tool Specialties Company in 1947. He was an experienced toolmaker with entrepreneurial spirit. Since the very first day we have maintained a tradition of Quality and Excellence in the Tool & Die Industry.
We are a second and third generation company that continues to provide our customers with prompt service and accurate craftsmanship. Paul began in a 7,000 square foot building in Overland, Missouri with machinery considered to be the best of its time. There were no computers and no numeric controls just very skilled toolmakers that found a way to produce precision Dies, Jigs, Fixtures, and Special Machinery with what we now consider the most basic equipment.
