Tom Kriskovsky starts T&T Tool, Inc. out of his garage in the town of Trego, Wisconsin. It is primarily a die building shop that included Tom and one employee.
Tom moves the business into a small building in Spooner, Wisconsin. T&T Tool consists of four employees and three customers.
The company moves into a larger building.
The company continues as a die building shop until 1985 when Steve Sundeen becomes a partner. Over the next five years, the customer base grows to over 80 accounts and the focus shifts from die building to replacement parts for the wood products industry.
The business grows to include 40 employees and moves into a new building. 60% of the workload at T&T Tool is directed towards the engineered wood industry.
The company begins building welding fixtures for Caterpillar.
The business continues to grow and diversify, and now employs 60 people. A second building is constructed. The original building now houses manual and CNC mills and lathes, inspection department, shipping and receiving, and all support staff. Large fabrications, the die department, welding, laser and press work takes place in the second building.
