While Batesville Tool & Die does design, build and maintain the tools and dies that fit into the company's presses, its name is deceiving because its primary business is the stamping of steel parts, not traditional tool-and-die work. The company produces more than 500 different parts for more than 40 customers across North America, including Bosch, Ford, General Motors, Honda and General Electric.
