BTD Overview!

BTD was founded in 1979 as Bismarck Tool and Die Co. While our core is still strongly rooted in a tool and die background, our company has grown to provide a complete spectrum of custom metalwork services. Today, we currently serve some of the world’s top brands from four different locations in Lakeville, MN, Detroit Lakes, MN, Washington, IL and Dawsonville, GA. But, we’re not stopping there. Looking forward, we plan to strengthen our company with expanded facilities and added services to deliver more value to our customers. Explore everything we have to offer and see what makes our metalwork first-class.
