History of ITD Precision

ITD Precision was founded as Industrial Tool and Die Company by C.F. “Fred” Tofte and now celebrates its 63rd year in business. Fred’s “doing whatever it takes” style and entrepreneurial spirit remains with the company today. The company began strictly as a tool and die shop until the late 1960’s, when it began purchasing punch press equipment. Today ITD is one Texas’ premier producers of metal stampings, primarily from progressive dies it designs and manufactures.
