Applied Tooling Technologies, formerly Waukesha Industrial Supply, has changed its name to better reflect the innovative changes taking place within the company and the metal working industry. The company touts a new vision, highly trained expert staff, and inventory management systems that enhance production tooling and operations for manufacturers and metal processing companies in multiple markets.

“Our vision is to be the best tooling technology operating partner for manufacturers helping them optimize productivity, performance and savings,” says Pete Delany, vice president of sales. “Our expert staff has the knowledge and application experience related to the most innovative products, technology, productivity enhancing production tooling and operational responsibility.”
