General Tool & Die Co., Inc. was founded in 1946. Compound, progressive and form dies are just a small example of the tooling manufactured at our state of the art facilities. The Door Latch Division was established in 1982, inspired when the second generation owners invented the Quiet Doorman™ panic bar retainer..
