About Us

Metric Tool & Stamping - About Us Metric Tool & Stamping, Inc. (MTSI) began operations in 1972, and has expanded to serve clients in Minnesota (home base), throughout the U.S., and around the world. MTSI provides sales, engineering, technical, and service support to commercial and industrial clients with precision micro stamping needs.

The history of MTSI dates back to President Hermann Knuass and his design and engineering training in Germany as a young man. He studied to be a watchmaker, and underwent a rigorous apprenticeship making small precision parts for cameras. His experience led him to establish MTSI, and though he is now retired, he served as the company's master toolmaker for 25 years.

MTSI combines Old World craftsmanship with the latest technologies. They offer superior tool making capabilities, as well as design and engineering assistance, whether clients require prototypes, short- or long-run production. MTSI is committed to serving their clients with the highest quality metal stampings no matter how large or small their need.
