Big Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc., a supplier of premium high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metalworking industries, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. When KPT Kaiser opened its doors in 1990, most shops used boring tool technology from the 1950s, where tool changes were a costly and a time-consuming process.

Labeling themselves “The Tooling Problem Solvers,” the Kaiser sales team set out to take on the industry’s toughest problems to prove the efficiency and time savings of modular boring tools. Today, the modular connections are still the same, meaning that a tool built in 1969 can still be used on a machine today.

“I started the company out of necessity,” says Big Kaiser president and CEO Chris Kaiser. “I knew we needed to change how we were selling the boring tools manufactured by my father’s company in Switzerland, Heinz Kaiser AG.”

Now a member of the Big Daishowa Group of companies, Big Kaiser plays an integral role in the company’s worldwide R&D and manufacturing strategy. Big Kaiser develops and provides high-performance tool holders, boring heads, workholding, measuring instruments and custom engineering support for machining companies.
