Monaghan Tooling Group was founded as Monaghan & Associates Inc. by Dave Monaghan in 1986 and started making quality roller burnishing tools and mechanical joining tools. Scott Monaghan joined his father in 1992. In 1996 the opportunity to partner with our local competitor, Elliott Tool Technologies, presented itself. The two companies created a synergy and filled a need within each company. Monaghan needed a bigger and better manufacturing facility and engineer capability and Elliott needed a better roller burnishing product design and sales and marketing team geared towards the metal working industry.

Elliott Tool Technologies traces its roots back to 1892 as the Gustav Wiedeke Co. They are the world leader in the tube tool industry and known as the “original tube tool company.” For over 60 years, Elliott Tool Technologies had also manufactured their precision metal finishing products: roller burnishing tools, diamond burnishing tools, carbide-roll burnishing tools and mechanical joining tools. In 1997, the following products were added to our quality line of metal finishing tools: internal recessing units (IRU), back chamfering units (BCU) and elliptical deburring tools.

In 2004, Monaghan Advanced Tooling Technology group was formed to fill a need in the market for high performance, custom cutting tools made to the quality and performance standards of the more well known manufacturers, but with much shorter lead times and far better customer service. We are the US master distributors for three German tooling companies: DIATOOL – high performance reamers, UC Tools – PCD tooling and MK-Tools – solid carbide tools.

In 2012, our name was changed to Monaghan Tooling Group to better reflect our company as a whole and focus our vision and mission in the world marketplace.
