About Company:

In 1908, young Johnny Winzeler left Ft. Wayne, Indiana and started an entry-level position at a Chicago, IL manufacturing company. After completing a tool & die apprenticeship he became a toolmaker and in 1920 partnered with Pete Jacobsen to establish Reliance Die & Stamping. The business flourished for years and grew to over 100 employees until the Great Depression forced the company to close in 1931. In 1937, Johnny’s son, Harold, graduated from Northwestern University’s Mechanical Engineering School and immediately entered a tool & die apprenticeship. In 1940, with an improving economy, Harold founded Winzeler Manufacturing & Tool Company. Johnny joined Harold in this new venture and together they grew the company to become one of the leading producers of stamped metal gears for radio, appliance and toy industries.
