Established in 1946 and serving Englert as a vendor for over 40 years, Roselle Tool and Die was acquired last month by Englert, Inc. The company has closed its doors in Roselle, New Jersey, and is in process of opening a new, expanded shop within Englert’s new manufacturing and office building at 2 Amboy Avenue in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.
Owner George Kaminski, who has been with Roselle for 31 years, purchased the business 20 years ago from its founder. Kaminski was featured in the first edition of Tool and Die Design by McGraw Hill, which highlighted six of his strip layouts, and die designs.
He is bringing long-term employees Don Howe and Roman Fayngersh, with him. Ed Lovis, who has been Englert’s only in-house tool and die maker, will join the three men at the new location.
They are expecting delivery of new hi-tech equipment to make Englert’s tool and die making among the best in the industry. Kaminski estimates that 80 percent of the machine tools currently in use at Englert were designed and built by his team.
Kaminski is looking forward to the new assignments they are expecting. He said, “We have a whole list of new die parts to make, including a number of new gutter components. We are excited and ready to go.”
