Texas Industrial Machine & Design was founded in 2005 with an emphasis on designing and building assembly equipment for the heavy truck industry. Since that time, we have grown to serve a broad group of customers including heavy truck, aerospace, oil & gas, and automotive.

We specialize in tight tolerance assembly fixtures, drill fixtures, custom tools, material handling equipment, and prototype parts. We operate in a small shop environment and work closely with our customers to design and fabricate solutions to challenging manufacturing problems.

We are a family owned business with experienced employees and diverse capabilities. We’d love to help you with your next project—please contact us for more information!
