In 1990 Universal Tooling was formed in Elkhart, IN. Their main focus was producing custom engineering and manufacturing of Bender Tooling, fixtures and gauges. After many years of continued growth and success, Universal Tooling was able to merge and partner with Eaton Leonard Tooling in 2006. Known as (ELT) this partnership gave the company over 48 years of combined experience in the design and manufacturer of custom Bender, End Form and Tube fabrication tooling for multiple markets globally.
In 2010 ELT saw another opportunity to better serve their customers by merging with Midwest Bender Services. In business since 2001 Midwest Bender services was a full service CNC Bender power house, specializing in servicing, rebuilding, retrofitting, upgrading and training for a wide range of CNC Bender and Tube fabrication machines. This merger created Tube Form Solutions making them a global leader and a total solution provider for the Tube and pipe bending and fabrication market.
