About Our Company


VIP Tooling was created by Vonnegut Industrial Supply's stockholders to service their customers' special cutting tool requirements. The VIP Tooling division was incorporated as a separate company in 1974.

From a simple tool grinding company, VIP Tooling has evolved into a modern manufacturing facility utilizing the latest 3D modeling, CAD/CAM software, and CNC equipment. The diversity of equipment represents VIP Tooling's philosophy of not being dependent upon subcontractors to complete projects for our customers.

Today, VIP Tooling employs a team of people that are cross-trained in different areas of the operation to maintain manufacturing flexibility. As a company, we are committed to a continuous training program to stay current with the latest in modeling, machining, and measuring technology.

VIP Tooling´s commitment to continual improvement through training, machines and software gives the ability to always be prepared to meet the customer’s needs. This is reflected by the wide scope of industries served worldwide which range from aluminum extrusion tooling to production parts for off-highway machinery to testing fixtures for universities.

Our history shows that VIP Tooling will continue to grow to meet our customers’ present and future needs.
