Cleveland has been supplying superior cutting tooling solutions to industry for over 130 years and is a North America’s Choice since 1876. The Cleveland Twist Drill Company, was founded in 1876 by Jacob D. Cox, Sr., as a small twist drill factory in western New York. He used $2,000 borrowed from his father to buy a 50% stake in C. C. Newton’s small twist drill factory in western New York.
Later that year, he moved the company to Cleveland, Ohio. The 1968 merger of the Cleveland Twist Drill Company and the National Acme Company created Acme-Cleveland Corporation. Although Cleveland Twist Drill was Acme-Cleveland’s founding business, accounting for two-thirds of overall sales, it was sold in the fall of 1994 to longtime rival Greenfield Industries Inc.
