Welcome to Cogsdill

In 1914 Stuart A. Cogsdill set up shop in Detroit as a cutting tool regrinding and repair service. He soon began designing and manufacturing special tools for early automotive pioneers such as Henry Ford and the Dodge brothers, who relied on Cogsdill to develop innovative tooling solutions for tough manufacturing problems.

Currently owned and operated by the second and third generation of Stuart Cogsdill’s descendants, Cogsdill offers its 21st century customers the same commitment that inspired its founder.

“We will develop and build innovative tooling solutions for your tough manufacturing problems.”

In a fast-paced continually evolving industry, Cogsdill embraces investment in state-of-the-art production technology to meet the very latest engineering challenges. We push the envelope of what can be done, and welcome the opportunity to try new technologies, including utilising the latest 3D modelling techniques to future-proof our product ranges. We are committed to developing durable, modular components to drive higher efficiencies and continually looking at standardising our tools.

Most tools can be utilised in old or new machines: This versatility allows them to lend themselves to low, medium or high production – same tool, same quality.
