Big Kaiser Celebrates 25 Years

The company has operated in North America since 1990.

Big Kaiser Precision Tooling is celebrating 25 years of North American operations. Incorporated under the name Kaiser Precision Tooling (KPT), the subsidiary of Switzerland-based Heinz Kaiser AG opened the doors of its Elk Grove Village, Illinois, location on August 1, 1990. In 2003, KPT formed an alliance with Big Daishowa Seiki, a Japanese manufacturer of toolholders, cutting tools and measuring accessories. As a result of the alliance, KPT changed its name to Big Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. The company moved to a new 33,000-square-foot facility in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, in 2009. Big Kaiser currently supplies high-precision tooling systems and solutions under brands including Big Daishowa, Kaiser, Speroni, Unilock and Sphinx.
