The story behind ITB

Fine precision work, that is what ITB excels at. The smallest products come from our moulds. While our products are small, we like to think big. That all began in 1966, when Kees van Dooremalen started a tool manufacturing company in the south of the Netherlands with the ambitious name International Tools Boxtel. In doing so, he laid the foundation for ITB as it exists today.
