Induction Tooling, Inc. began as an idea in 1975. William Stuehr, now President and CEO of the Corporation was working as a process design engineer with a local heat treating company. Several customers requested and solicited tooling specific to their internal heat treat needs. Bill’s boss rejected the idea to build tooling: hence, a ready made business was in the waiting. Bill started his company in his parents’ garage. In 1979 he moved the business to a small rented facility in North Royalton, Ohio. By 1984 with 10 employees, Bill purchased a building down the street. In 1994, the space was doubled to 14,000 square feet. In 2004 Bill purchased 5 acres in Phase II of the North Royalton Industrial Park. On April 7, 2005, Bill along with his 27 employees celebrated the groundbreaking of a modern 25,000 square foot facility which was completed in October 2005.
