Our roots can be traced back to the 1800s when Andreas Anderson was a respected blacksmith in Sweden. He taught his children the art of blacksmithing during intensive four-year apprenticeships beginning at age 14. Two of his offspring, William and Frank Anderson, emigrated to the United States and founded Chicago Cutting Die 97 years ago in 1923.
The Anderson brothers vowed to provide every customer with the very finest products at competitive prices. Furthermore, they committed to conducting business only on the highest level of professionalism based on honesty, integrity, and mutual trust.
Today, Andreas' great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren operate Chicago Cutting Die. While we've invested millions of dollars to upgrade our facilities and technologies, our commitment to unsurpassed quality has never wavered. It is every bit as strong today as it was in 1923. We owe today's success to a long list of loyal customers and our dedicated employees who share our family philosophy.
