About This Super Cutting Tools Supplier
In 1927 Conrad Birgbauer founded Super Tool, a
company that directly accelerated the nations electronics
industry and helped pave the way for America to become an industrial
giant. Birgbauer recognized the industrys need for quality
tooling that could perform well under the toughest manufacturing
conditions. Consequently he used a new metal compound called
to produce metal power tools that would retain their cutting edge
at tremendously high temperatures and perform well against extremely
hard cutting surfaces.
In essence, super industrial power tools.The first Super Tool customers were automotive firms, particularly
Chrysler and Ford corporations, who required a reliable industrial tool equipment supply. Expansion led to more
extensive tooling and the clientele list grew, adding Caterpillar
Tractor and International Harvestor, helping Super Tool retain its leadership as the top industrial cutting tools supplier. Van Norman Industries
purchased Super Tool in 1955 and initiated an aggressive research
and development program, which resulted in a superior system
of cutting technology designed to advance the miniaturization
program of the electronics industry. A major breakthrough was
the design and production of standard solid
carbide miniature drills having diameters as low as .0065.
Possibilities for industrial cutting tools grew and Super Tool expanded
its product line to provide American industry with a wide selection
of carbide cutting tools.
In 1962 Van Norman merged and became Universal American. The
Super Tool marketing program was expanded to a nationwide basis.
1968 saw the takeover of Universal American by Gulf and Western,
making Super Tool a division of G&W Manufacturing Industries
until 1984 when Jim Lambert purchased the company in conjunction
with Morse Cutting Tools. The main office and manufacturing
facilities were located in Elk Rapids, Michigan.
In June of 1988, Super Tool was purchased by Dennis Lemkau.
In 1991 the firm was purchase by its present owner and moved
to Bradenton, Florida where its product line of top-quality industrial power tools was expanded and
the manufacturing process refined.
