Established in 1987 by Vladimir Palijan, and now operated by his sons Robert and Michael, General Tool & Die has a long history of designing, building and maintaining tools for stamper's in Southern Ontario and the surrounding region. We have had the opportunity to build for many different areas within the stamping industry including office furniture/machines, home appliance/garage door, automotive and just recently heavy truck manufacturing.

We strongly believe in keeping all phases of a tools build process in-house whenever possible, so that we have complete and full control over the quality of workmanship being put into the tool, and this includes all the little details. Because of this, we strive to grow our business in ways that will help us maintain this quality, which we have been able to deliver to our customers for almost 20 years.

The tools we build have ranged from the most simple single station hand-transfer blanking dies to complex multi-station progressive dies featuring double-action cam stations and more. Regardless of price or complexity, each and every tool built is one that we can be proud of and stand behind 100%.

Although we are proud of the large list of in-house designed and built tools from over the past 19 years, we feel our greatest accomplishment lies in the fact that we remain honest, dedicated, and respectful of our customers. We work hard at understanding the customers needs and goals, and we do our best to work with them so that in the end everyone can walk away having gained something.
