EJ Ajax & Sons, a third-generation metal forming company in Fridley, Minn., has acquired Minneapolis tool and die company Swirtz Tool & Mfg. Paul Swirtz, founder of the tool and die company, has joined the EJ Ajax toolroom.
The companies had a long history of collaboration before the acquisition. "Some of our customers’ most successful, most profitable jobs are running on tooling that Paul built for us," Erick Ajax said. The acquisition expands EJ Ajax's in-house tooling capability.
