North American Tool Corporation, South Beloit, IL, is celebrating its 25th Anniversary!

To commemorate this momentous occasion, North American Tool will be sponsoring the City of Beloit, WI fireworks on the Fourth of July. The company will host a company picnic at The Rotary River Center in Beloit’s Riverside Park on July 4th, inviting Associates and their families, retirees and others who have played key roles in the growth and success of the company.

“It’s an ideal way to give back to a great community while we celebrate a milestone event,” stated company president and CEO Curt Lansbery. “We are truly excited for our customers, our associates, and our community to be celebrating our 25th year in the industrial tooling business”, said Lansbery.

North American Tool was founded in 1986, in South Beloit, IL by the father and son team of Kenyon Y. Taylor, a leading industrialist and his son Roger K. Taylor, a recognized marketing strategist. Working in an area of the country known for its strong industrial roots in the manufacturing and metalworking industries, these men had a vision, recognizing a need for a special tooling company to service a growing U.S. market. The company was founded on three simple principles and ideals:

• Outstanding Customer Service
• Quality Products 
• On Time Shipments

“What started as a small, specialty tool producer with an emphasis on threading tools and a goal of 24 hour delivery, has grown into an internationally recognized manufacturer selling products and providing services in 56 countries”, said Bernie Bowersock, Senior Vice President.

Today, North American Tool Corporation is an integral part of Global Specialty Solutions Inc. (South Beloit, IL), which also includes Gaylee Saws (Sterling Heights, MI), Bitner Tooling Technologies (Sterling Heights, MI), Allen Benjamin, Inc.
