New Ulm Precision Tool, Inc. (NUPTI) was founded in 1974 and located in a 12,000 sq. ft. facility in New Ulm, Minnesota. By 1989, the company had outgrown its first facility, so the founder of the company, Curt Asleson, decided to move the company to a larger facility located just down the road at 2217 South Broadway. With the need for yet another expansion in 2006, Curt added on to the building bringing the size of the plant to over 20,000 sq. ft.

In the early years, NUPTI was known for designing and building close tolerance stamping dies.  In the early ‘80’s, we expanded into workholding fixtures as well.  NUPTI has continued to evolve to meet the complex demands of continuous improvement in manufacturing by producing more challenging or difficult fixtures for workholding tasks. We design and build machines that involve sequenced hydraulic circuits, part present sensing, self-centering locators, etc.  We are known for thinking “outside the box”, and take pride in developing clean, solid and user friendly designs.

New Ulm Precision Tool, Inc. is a leader in the design and fabrication of quality tool and die products, workholding fixtures and custom machines. We accomplish this by putting our most important asset, the customer, first.  Along with producing quality custom tooling, NUPTI is known for top notch support after the project is completed.  All drawings, project information and notes are archived for future reference as needed. The partnership with the customer is important to NUPTI and support after shipment is a key role in maintaining that partnership. NUPTI hires and trains the best employees in the industry who use state-of-the-art equipment to meet the customer’s quality, delivery and cost effective tooling requirements.

In the spring of 2007, NUPTI was purchased by Specialty Manufacturing Company (SMC), a 110 year old privately owned company located in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.  With the acquisition, NUPTI became a member of SMC’s already diversified company portfolio. SMC is organized into six vertically integrated divisions. Please visit the websites for more information on each division.
