Our History

Superior Tool Service opened its doors over thirty-five years ago in Wichita, Kansas. It was 1987 when local machine shops started experiencing the quality and superior service we continue to offer to this day.

Co-Owner Clint Whitney began as a tool grinder at Superior Tool Service in 1998. Throughout his years at the company, he continued to bring growth. That’s why he now serves as President of Superior Tool Service.

In 2007, Christie Whitney was hired because of her financial background and accounting degree. She is now a Co-Owner and serves as General Office and Accounting Manager.

Superior Tool Service moved locations in 2017 to expand large order capabilities and add the new divisions to better serve their customers with STS Coatings in 2017 and STS Supply in 2018. The current site is 33,000 square feet with customers that include leading manufacturers that serve the following industries:

  • Aerospace
  • Thermoplastics
  • Medical & Dental
  • Composites Manufacturing Heavy Equipment & Agricultural
  • Automotive Including High-Performance
  • Industrial Manufacturers of All Sizes

Because of dedication and quality, we’ve grown to serve over a thousand machine shops locally and worldwide.
