Walker Tool & Manufacturing Co., a Detroit-area custom parts fabricator for nearly 60 years, has selected DesignHub to design and develop their new website. Walker Tool applies high-precision machining to produce custom parts in a range of materials for customers ranging from food processing equipment manufacturers to defense suppliers. Parts manufactured by Walker Tool can be found everywhere from conveyor systems and military vehicles to oil rigs, trucks, and tractors.
Since Walker Tool’s founding in 1960, the company has endured as a family owned and operated parts supplier through times of times of economic boom and bust and through periods of wrenching changes in global manufacturing markets. Walker Tool’s headquarters and manufacturing facility are in Redford, Michigan.
Walker Tools’s new website is being developed with support from the Great Lakes Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (GLTAAC) at the University of Michigan. GLTAAC is a federally funded nonprofit organization that provides assistance to manufacturers whose businesses may have been been adversely affected by imports and changing competitive conditions.
