Don Westra founded West Tool & Design in 1990 to be a supplier of fixtures and machine tools to the electronics industry. We quickly diversified into a supplier of parts, machines and systems to customers serving diverse markets such the mechanical equipment, aviation and medical device industries. We can support high-mix, low volume custom fabrication requirements.
In 2009 West Tool & Design purchased and began producing custom-sizable UL listed enclosures through a fabrication facility in Battle Lake, Minnesota. That business became West Tool Enclosures in 2012 and is now owned by Glen Westra.
Evan Westra began operating West Tool & Design after Don’s retirement in 2009 and became the owner in 2014. The commitment to excellence is as strong as ever. We will continue to provide value to our customers through solutions to manufacturing needs with system design and build, precision components, fabrications, and assemblies.
