Powerhold is a 60-year-old American Manufacturing Company that is focused on solving challenges associated with holding a workpiece. Our solutions may utilize a standard item such as a jaw chuck or live center, or may involve a custom designed assembly, such as a collet chuck with part detection and foolproof load. Powerhold is the North American distributor for Bruckner, Gamet, Tecnomors & Nikko products.
The company started with the three men working in Bill Manchester's garage and breezeway, but shortly outgrew the facility. In March 1963, the name ''PowerGrip, Inc.'' was changed to ''PowerHold Products, Inc.'', in December 1979, Richard C. Spooner was elected President of the Corporation.
In 1981 the company moved to a new facility that could provide office and shop areas for the current and foreseeable future. This move took the company from Rockfall to Middlefield, CT. During these years Powerhold grew their offering of Powerhold standard products as well as distribution products. With a staff of talented engineers, Powerhold was able to expand and offer custom workholding solutions for customers across North America.
Today the company occupies a 15,000 sq. ft. modern manufacturing facility that utilizes the latest in CNC machining, AutoCAD and 3D drawing. Powerhold is proud to offer custom and standard products made in the USA. In addition, strategic global alliances allow Powerhold to supply North America with some of the finest products from around the world.
