History of Exacto Spring
Incorporated in 1960, in Rockford, Illinois, Exacto Spring Corporation set out on a mission to provide the highest quality standards in both deliverables and customer relations. Four years after its inception, Exacto moved to Grafton, Wisconsin and built a 4,000 square foot building, located near several customers. Over the years, Exacto has expanded its facility and today covers nearly 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space including a fully equipped R&D division, customer relations department, advanced engineering center, and much more. Today, you can count on us to assist in the engineering and manufacture of extremely high-tolerance springs and wireforms backed by unprecedented customer service. Our team will work as your partner to assist with your engineering process. You are the reason we remain committed to excellence.
During the 1970's, we grew into a prominent spring company serving all industries in the United States. Exacto nearly doubled in size in the early 1980's when we exclusively made all the keyboard springs for the birth of IBM computers. The 1990's took Exacto into the precision automotive market with extremely tight tolerance parts, and created a sector involving extensive military applications. In the 2000 era, we created Exacto Medical, where many of our manufactured parts play a vital role in the medical community. Exacto is everywhere you are, including external and internal medical devices. The growing medical segment of Exacto has offered an expanded area of precision to ensure an improved lifestyle to those who receive medical implant devices containing Exacto products. As a result, our medical division has served as the start of our second generation and continues to be family owned.
Exacto manufactures close to one BILLION springs/wireforms every year and ships worldwide to dozens of countries. We would like to welcome you to become part of our history.
