Our History

In 1951, Gene Arnold started Arnold Tool & Die Works, Inc. in his garage. In 1954, the company moved to 31st & West Broadway. Gene's son, Lloyd, bought the company in 1976. In 1996, Lloyd Arnold sold the company to three long time employees: Jim Hackett, Dean Brougham and Doug Killion, 

After suffering from the closure of a major customer in 2001, Arnold Tool & Die Works, Inc. closed its doors in June 2002. In July 2002, Jim Hackett and his wife Michelle opened Arnold Tool, Inc. In January 2011, due to the expansion of the interstate system, the state relocated Arnold Tool, Inc. to its current location. The Hackett's retired in July of 2014 and sold the company to long time employees: brothers John Lucas and Pat Lucas.
