Peak Toolworks Acquires Tooling Concepts, Furthering Presence in Elkhart, Greater Midwest

Posted by IndustryNet on Monday, April 4, 2022


Peak Toolworks (“Peak”) has announced the completion of its acquisition of Tooling Concepts Inc. in Elkhart, IN. This has allowed the company to further its presence in the Midwest with this brick and mortar sharpening site, while adding to Peak’s twelve locations across the USA and Canada. The addition of an Elkhart plant also creates a new opportunity to serve Peak’s customers engaged in cutting and machining metal, wood, plastics and composites throughout the growing and diverse mid-west industrial base.

The additional location in Elkhart, IN will capitalize and build on each company’s success in the local market they currently serve and continue to provide its customers with industry-leading levels of service and innovative products.

Kerry Baskins, CEO and President announced, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Joe and the outstanding team members at Tooling Concepts. Peak has been very active in the Elkhart and Michiana area for many years. Due to continued growth and at the request of many of our customers, we felt it was important to re-establish a local presence to better enable our expansion plans in the region. Joe Wilkins and his team have done an outstanding job serving customers in the region and we plan to invest in even more equipment, local inventory and expanded capability at this location to keep up with the strong demand.”

Founded in 1998 by Joe Wilkins, Tooling Concepts is a natural fit within Peak Toolworks. Both companies value innovation through design. They are also leaders in tooling and applications for carbide, diamond, cermet and HSS. Joe added, “Tooling Concepts would like to thank our valued staff and customers for over 23 years of success. As one door closes another door opens to the future of the tooling industry. We are grateful that our Tooling Concepts team will remain and grow in the Elkhart community through Peak Toolworks. We are looking forward to working closely with Peak to ensure that our quality and services are maintained and expanded upon. We leave our legacy to Peak Toolworks to provide the best services in the area for all your tooling needs.”

Tooling Concepts currently services the Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois areas where Peak Toolworks also has a loyalty base. The integration expands Peak’s ability to rapidly deliver innovative tooling and service solutions to local customers, resulting in speed to market, superior service and exceeding customer expectations for quality and reliability.

Tooling Concepts was the right fit to do just that. Jesse Buzzard, Vice President Sales and Marketing stated, “The addition of this facility will serve to strengthen our relationships in the greater Elkhart-Goshen geography. We are ready to grow with our customers through providing high quality local service and new ideas for precision cutting tools.”

Peak Toolworks is excited to return to the Elkhart, IN area and is planning a grand reopening in Spring 2022.
