Tom has lived and breathed Tool and Die ever since he was a teenager. He earned his journeyman’s card while attending college and then graduated from the University of Missouri, Columbia, where he graduated with his business degree. He has been active full time ever since, becoming the owner and president of UTD in 1982. Tom’s wealth of knowledge in the Tool and Die and metal stamping industry has grown to over 45 years strong. Although it doesn’t stop at just tooling and metal stamping, his expertise branches out into fabricating, engineering and machining as well. In his spare time, he enjoys rebuilding exotic cars, motorcycles, and even a gas turbine. When he’s not working on one of his many projects, he loves spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren.
