See how

In 1987, the Hermans; Clayton, Sheri, and Rick opened H&H Mold and Tooling in Fairfield, Iowa. H&H’s humble beginning included 5 employees with 5,000 square feet of production space. Evolving from manual milling machines to acquiring the Midwest’s first Computer Automated Tracing Machine, “The Cat”; to now encompassing multiple 3 and 5-axis CNC mills, 23,000 square feet of production space and 25 skilled employees who are dedicated to providing excellent quality design and manufacturing.

Like our transition to the company name Herman Mold + Tooling, some things have changed since our beginning. But, we still are–and always will be–the family-owned, American-made company employing skilled workers in the heartland of Iowa, and our objective remains to be a leader in delivery, accuracy, and innovation.
