Our History

NuTec shares a rich heritage of precision manufacturing in Northwest Pennsylvania. NuTec’s founder, Ken Deane, received a springboard education as he took his Toolmaker’s apprenticeship at Talon Zipper. Talon Zipper, founded in 1893, ultimately moved to Meadville, Pa. It was in Meadville that the zipper as we know it was invented; until then they were producing hookless fasteners for boots and shoes. Here, the zipper was mass-produced beginning in the 1920s.

The high demand for zippers drove a huge demand for skilled Toolmakers. One aspect of this manufacturing of Zippers was the need to design and build specialize equipment to manufacture zipper chain as well as equipment leased to clothing manufacturers to assemble zippers on clothing. Ken Deane benefited from this unique education and specialized training.

The Talon company encountered significant difficulties in the late 70’s and declined over the next 20 years as off-shore manufacturing challenged their domain. Eventually this core of skilled craftsmen began moving into the community, starting their own businesses. As time went on, NuTec Tooling Systems was formed in 1983, capitalizing on the special art of automated equipment design and build. Meadville was nicknamed Tool City USA with more tool shops per capita than any other place in the United States.

NuTec prides itself as being part of this synergistic hub of talent. Today, we continue to provide state-of-the-art solutions to industry challenges. The art of equipment build lives on with innovative designs and world-class expertise. NuTec provides world-class production-worthy equipment to Fortune 100 companies and has equipment located in 13 countries. Our long-term relationships are testimony to where we have been, who we are and where we are going.
