Burton Saw & Supply acquires Global Tooling and Supply

February 22, 2016 - Burton Saw & Supply, a manufacturer and distributor of consumable products and equipment to saw mills and wood product manufacturers, recently acquired Global Tooling and Supply, L.L.C. (Global Tooling). Global Tooling, based in Eugene, Ore. is a distributor of cutting tools, knives and associated products for wood product manufacturers primarily in North America. The company sells a broad product portfolio of approximately 2,000 SKUs to an active customer base of over 800 customers. 

“Global Tooling has supplied Burton Saw for the past 20 years and we are aligned with Burton Saw’s culture, vision and values,” said Global Tooling’s owner Eric Allen.  “This combination is a logical fit and we are very excited about the future.”

“Global Tooling’s diverse business model, impressive growth, outstanding customer service and strong cross-selling potential made the company an ideal addition to the Burton Saw platform,” said Craig Tompkins, CEO of Burton Saw. “The partnership also facilitates a strong entrée into the secondary wood products market for our organization.”

This is Burton Saw’s second strategic acquisition since Pfingsten became the majority shareholder in December 2014. The transaction is part of Pfingsten’s strategy to create the leading supplier of consumable products and equipment to North American wood product manufacturers.
