Tim Adkisson opened TA Tool and Die in January 2004 with 18 years of die engineering and stamping experience under his belt. Due to precision, timeliness, honesty, and multiple expansions, the company is now located in a custom built shop between Milan and Medina, Tennessee. The acquisition of additional land, construction of additional storage/machine space, and expansion of our Stamping Department affords our company more time and resources to focus on new customers while maintaining the same quality and precision on which our reputation was built.

Tim Adkisson, Owner/General Manager Tim was raised right here in Milan where he spent a great deal of time tending to the farm and playing the drums in a local band. He raised his two daughters, Aaron and Alex, on the farm right next door. He managed to start and grow this business between keeping up the farm and attending tennis matches and football games. Now-a-days he spends most of his spare time doing chores around the farm with his wife, Kathy, crappie fishing, and playing with his two grandsons, Layne and Britton.
