Burloak Tool is announcing that it has now integrated Armactool, a tool & die plant in St. George, Ont., it had acquired in December, under the Burloak brand.
Burloak Tool has also welcomed all Armactool employees to the Burloak team.
“Together, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The combined bench strength can’t be beat, die build capacity is increased. More than ever, customers can turn to our team with complex problems they want solved quickly,” said President & CEO Sean Brown.
Armactool had provided tooling to blue chip manufacturers for over 20 years.
“In that, their mission has been to produce quality tooling, delivered on time at a competitive price. Their mission aligns with the values and standards that Burloak Tool has demonstrated for over 40 years,” Burloak Tool said in a media release. “With the ability to optimize across both plants, new die build capacity increases, lead times decrease, and the service offering expands. Armactool has particular expertise with large complex stamping dies of all types.
Burloak Tool adds that the increased fabrication capacity supports the underlying new die build strategy of both companies: in house design, on-site fabrication, and in house die build and trials, to control quality and lead times.
Additionally, Burloak, as a fully integrated production stamper (to 800T), now offers stamping services to legacy Armactool customers who require additional outsourced capacity, or short runs.
This latest move from Burloak Tool, is part of a greater business strategy to scale the Burloak Tool offering to existing and new customers.
