Marion Tool & Die, Inc., was founded in August 1996 in a 22x22 garage on the family farm. The small Tool & Die Shop was led by Toolmaker Tim Marion and his family, Tammy, Leonard, Babe and Carole Marion.
After outgrowing their small shop on the farm, the Marion Family moved to a larger facility in Terre Haute, IN. and began growing into production manufacturing by stamping out 9x13 cake pans on small hydraulic presses formed on a die built by Tim Marion.
Marion received their ISO9000 Certification and moved to a 5-1/2 acre, 15,000 square foot facility in their hometown of West Terre Haute, IN, which is where the company is still headquartered today.
