Progressive Die & Stamping, Inc. (PDS) was founded by Benedict J. Perron as B & R Tool Company in 1967 in Terryville, CT.
Mr. and Mrs. Perron moved their business to Tennessee in 1992 because of economic opportunities, forecasted growth in the area, and their desire to retire in Tennessee. The relocated company was renamed Progressive Die & Stamping, Inc.
Ben's son, Duane T. Perron, now owns Progressive Die & Stamping, Inc. Duane continues the tradition of providing the best quality, service and competitive pricing that has been a mainstay of PDS since its inception. PDS continues to focus on keeping production in the United States. Duane, representing the new generation, brings his own flare and approach to the family business.
In January 2023 we passed our ISO 9001:2015 audit. This confirms that our time-tested quality management and improvement system that we pour into every job produces quality parts and happy customers.
