In 1902, Bill Freeman resold excess shop materials to other foundry pattern shops in the Toledo, OH area. This side business was named Freeman Pattern Supply and moved to Toledo as a regional supplier.
In the 1960s, Freeman acquired several similar suppliers around the country and became the nation’s largest tooling material supplier to pattern shops. This enabled Freeman to serve the rapidly growing automotive and aerospace industries. Freeman then expanded into manufacturing with the acquisition of a specialty wax manufacturer in Cleveland, OH, officially becoming Freeman Manufacturing and Supply Company.
Building Partnerships & a New Headquarters
In the 1980s, the tooling plastics manufacturing division developed and grew while an enduring partnership began with CIBA, later Huntsman Advanced Materials.
In 1998, Freeman’s new facility in Avon, OH (near Cleveland) became its headquarters to this day. Since then, it has expanded to 150,000 sq. ft. in order to accommodate the growing staff and reliable stocking of products.
Geographical Growth & Major Acquisitions
In the last 20 years, Freeman has expanded to 150,000 sq. ft. in order to accommodate the growing staff and reliable stocking of products and has added several warehouses and sales territories. Numerous companies have been acquired to expand the industries we serve and and product lines we carry.
