ELBA Tool was founded in 1962 starting with minimal equipment at a storefront location in Maywood, Illinois. The company has expanded several times since its modest beginnings.

Since 1999, ELBA has operated in a custom-built, state-of-the-art facility in Bloomingdale, Illinois, west of Chicago. The current facility was custom-designed to house the larger equipment, CNC machines, and material handling systems needed to produce larger tools and components.

Still family owned and operated, the company remains dedicated to the craftsmanship and values established by its founders.
