March 1, 2022 | Bill Esler

Elkhart, IN—Peak Toolworks acquired Tooling Concepts Inc., a tool sharpening business located in Elkhart, IN. A grand reopening is planned for Spring 2022.

Adding to Peak’s 12 locations across U.S. and Canada, the addition of an Elkhart plant give Peak the opportunity to serve customers engaged in cutting and machining metal, wood, plastics, and composites throughout the growing and diverse mid-west industrial base.

The additional location in Elkhart, IN will capitalize on each company’s success in the local markets they currently serve. It enhances Peak’s ability to grow while enabling the company to continue providing its customers with industry-leading levels of service and innovative products.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Joe and the outstanding team members at Tooling Concepts,” says Kerry Baskins, Peak CEO and president. Peak Toolworks (IWF Booth 4816) has been very active in the Elkhart and Michiana area for many years. Due to continued growth and at the request of many of our customers, we felt it was important to re-establish a local presence to better enable our expansion plans in the region. Joe Wilkins and his team have done an outstanding job serving customers in the region, and we plan to invest in even more equipment, local inventory and expanded capability at this location to keep up with the strong demand.”

Founded in 1998 by Joe Wilkins, Tooling Concepts values innovation through design and is a leader in tooling and applications for carbide, diamond, cermet, and HSS.

“We are looking forward to working closely with Peak to ensure that our quality and services are maintained and expanded upon,” says WIlkins. “We leave our legacy to Peak Toolworks to provide the best services in the area.”

Tooling Concepts currently services the Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois areas where Peak Toolworks also has a loyalty base. The integration expands Peak’s ability to rapidly deliver innovative tooling and service solutions to local customers, resulting in speed to market, superior service, and exceeding customer expectations for quality and reliability.
