Our mission is to improve your manufacturing productivity by being the supplier of choice for clinching, specialty press and work holding equipment.

What BTM Provides

What BTM Provides

Our Story

In 1966 Milus Allison and Edwin Sawdon started BTM by creating highly specialized stretch bending machines for use in the production of structural components and decorative sheet metal trim parts. They recognized the need for inexpensive, yet reliable, compact high force press units and the air toggle press was invented and became the first of many BTM patented products.

They recognized the need for inexpensive, compact high force press units and the air toggle press was invented.

As sales of the toggle press grew, the company explored new applications for these versatile presses and in 1980 invented the sealed clinch joint, Tog-L-Loc.

To meet the needs of our customers, BTM developed clinching presses, specialty machines, premium tooling and production systems.

BTM continues what Milus and Edwin started over 50 years ago by developing innovative, customer-oriented solutions, making BTM the supplier of choice for a wide range of products.
