Elliott Tool Technologies is proud to represent 125 years of manufacturing, sales, and engineering experience. In September 1892, an inventor and manufacturer named Gustav Wiedeke began a small manufacturing business in a modest building at the rear of his Dayton, Ohio home. Today, over 100 years later, Wiedeke Dayton has become Elliott Tool Technologies Ltd. due to Mr. Wiedeke’s efforts. The Wiedeke business continued to operate as a family enterprise for the next 32 years. By this time, Wiedeke products had earned a worldwide reputation for excellence in the industries they served. Wiedeke tools were innovative enough to be covered by various patents and trademarks. In 1916, William Elliott also recognized the need and opportunity in the industry for efficient tube cleaning equipment. Operating plants in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, the company went through several company name iterations (Lagonda Springfield and Elliott Springfield) and eventually became known as the Elliott Company. By the late 1960’s, Elliott Company also enjoyed a worldwide reputation for its cleaning and turbomachinery products. And in 1969, acquired the Gustav Wiedeke Company. Today it is a private company known as Elliott Tool Technologies. Boasting self-directed work teams, exceptional customer service, and a continued commitment to producing tube tools Gustav Wiedeke and William Swan Elliott would be proud of.

Ohmstede was founded in 1905 by August Ohmstede as an automotive repair shop in Beaumont, Texas. In 1902, the discovery of large pools of accessible crude oil at Spindletop, Beaumont TX., ushered in the industrial age for refining crude oil into a diversified portfolio of usable products. Ohmstede shifted operations to support the high demand for quality machining and repair of highly engineered process equipment. The Texas Company (Texaco), and Gulf Oil Company refineries located in Port Arthur, TX., were the largest refining operations in the world for many years. The Motiva Refinery, formerly The Texas Company refinery in Port Arthur, is currently the largest refining operation within the United States. Ohmstede developed and patented many machining processes to increase efficiency and quality of industrial process equipment. The company strategically expanded operations in close proximity to gulf coast ports where many oil companies established refining operations for receiving crude oil and distribution of refined products to developed and emerging nations throughout the world.
