Toledo Molding & Die was founded in 1955 as a model and pattern shop. The company has grown from this modest beginning into a full-service supplier with more than 1,000 employees, five manufacturing plants as well as a comprehensive research and development center, test lab and tooling facility. With the increase in merger and acquisition activity and the growing internationalization of suppliers, manufacturers are seeking out suppliers that build complete component systems for assembly. Large suppliers also increasingly want to work with fewer toolmakers to supply the content for a complete interior system. To meet these demands the company, as a Tier One and Tier Two supplier, works closely with customers to supply complete systems that come fully assembled and ready to install. Toledo Molding & Die is headquartered in Bowling Green, Ohio.
