Engineered and Manufactured In-House.
Dexterous Mold & Tool was established as C&E Mold in 1979. After outgrowing its original location, the company was relocated to their present location in 1992 and a new name was chosen. From its early days in a small pole barn, Dexterous has now grown into a 22,500 sq ft, state of the art manufacturing facility. Now managed by the 2nd generation of family members, we hope to have continued growth and success for our customers and very dedicated employees.
