Precision Metalforming Experts Achieve Impressive Milestone!
Attleboro, MA – 3/13/2020 – Larson Tool & Stamping Company, a precision metalforming manufacturer, is celebrating 100 years in the metal stamping industry this month. Nils G. Larson and C.W. Cederberg, two immigrants with skillsets as apprentice blacksmiths, came to America to find opportunity. On March 15, 1920, tool room machinery and power presses were being installed at the renovated Attleboro, MA facility as the two founders of Larson Tool awaited granting of their charter from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Larson and Cederberg were well on their way to fulfilling their plan to establish a company dedicated to the manufacture of metal stampings, assemblies, tools, and special machinery. Some of the early accomplishments that Larson has to its credit involve the development and patented ratchet wrench—of which Larson did the first stamping—that contributed to the sale of socket wrench sets, as well as the reinforcement clips for D-type shovel handles and the Larson Ford valve filter.
