West Tool & Design was founded by Don Westra in 1990 in Fergus Falls, MN. Starting as a supplier of fixtures and manufacturing systems in the electronics industry, West Tool & Design quickly developed into a national supplier of parts, machines and systems, and customized enclosures for the for municipal, waste water, and food manufacturing industries.

Due to our strong growth in enclosures and junction boxes, in 2012 West Tool Enclosures, LLC. became a separate company located in Fergus Falls, MN in close proximity to West Tool & Design. Today, both companies are still under guidance of the next generation of the Westra family, and the commitment to excellence is as strong as ever.
