National Tool & Manufacturing Co. (NTM) has expanded operations to respond to customers "quick-to-market" strategies. NTM relocated its steel headquarters to East Dundee, Illinois, in 2018. The company says that the East Dundee location is designed for ideal material handling, storage and production flow as well as for expanded lifting capabilities. NTM says that the move further improves NTM's lead times on processed mold base plates and improves sawing, milling and grinding on both raw and processed mold plates.

The East Dundee steel facility upgrades follow the 2016 expansion of NTM's temperature controlled mold base manufacturing plant. According to NTM, the dedicated machining facility with internal precision grinding capabilities enable premium, "insert-ready" mold-base construction. NTM says that the combined steel service center and mold base manufacturing operation offer a "one-stop" supplier for every size mold builder.
