Located in Toledo, Ohio, Edco has continuously operated since 1964, dedicated to the design and manufacture of large die cast tooling, generally in the 1600-4500 ton range. Edco is part of publicly-traded Exco Technologies (TSX:XTC) and a member of the Large Mould Business group operating in Canada, the USA, and Mexico.
In recent years our focus has been on designing and building tooling for engine blocks, transmission cases, and other large powertrain components, and now we are increasingly involved in the design and build of structural componentry.
Edco is also situated in a unique location, just 40 minutes from Detroit – the heart of the American automotive engineering business – and within driving distance of many of the major die casters. We also enjoy access to some of the nation’s most capable suppliers, providing our team with specialized welding, heat treating and other tooling industry-specific capabilities.
