Specialty Manufacturing was founded as Specialty Tool & Machine Company in 1974 by Walter Ingold. The company produced special tool holders and cutting tools for NC machines which led to the name, "Specialty Tool".

In 1976, Walter brought two of his grandsons, Tim and David Weyler into the company. After learning the trade for four years, the brothers purchased the company in 1980. With Walter remaining as president, Specialty Tool Co. continued to operate as a “garage shop” for another four years. In 1984 Walter passed away and Tim and Dave continued the business with his values and vision.

In 1989, Specialty Tool expanded with the purchase of its first CNC Machine, adding new markets and growth opportunities by entering into a more technological area of the industry. The company maintained steady growth and reinvestment over the years following and was ready to move again in 1994. The current four-acre property located at 3331 Gilmore Industrial Blvd. was purchased, and a new 22,500 square foot facility was constructed. This move led to a period of rapid growth for the business. The company's capabilities were expanded to a full fabrication shop with the addition of laser and forming equipment in 2000. Additional growth spurred expansions of the facility in 1999 and again in 2003, bringing the plant to its current size of 55,000 square feet.

In 2012, the company was renamed and rebranded to Specialty Manufacturing, more accurately reflecting the growth and vision for the furture of the business. In 2016 Tim and David sold the business to its current owners who continue to operate with the same values that the company was founded on.
