History

West Coast Metal Stamping, founded in 1990, and B&J Tool and Die, started in 1964, merged to form one large metal stamping facility in 1992. Despite the fact that corporate name was West Coast Metal Stamping, the newly formed organization was doing business as B&J Tool and Die Inc., which had a larger customer base and owned a 20,000 square foot building in Anaheim, California at the time of merger.

In 1997, the company moved into its current 58,000 square foot facility, which was chosen for its high ceiling, multiple loading doors, 70,000 square foot paved yard, and easy access for loading and unloading trucks inside our fenced yard. Also, the land has enough yard space to expand the current building by 9,000 square feet, if we choose to do so in the future. Inside the building we have 36 punch presses to 200 tons, engineering, quality assurance, fully equipped tool room, inventory warehouse, shipping and receiving, and all administration offices.

Although the organization has been designing and manufacturing class “A” progressive dies and stamping tools since inception, in 2007, management decided to emphasize our company profile as a metal stamper rather than a tool and die shop. Consequently, we took back our corporation identity and proudly became West Coast Metal Stamping, Inc.

Our Logo

Our new company logo was designed to represent a coil of metal in the shape of Greek letter Sigma, suggesting high productivity of progressive die stamping of coiled metal, continuity in business, and our dedication to an engineered Six Sigma approach to problem solving and continual improvement.

Moreover, the proportion between the diameter of our logo and the size of letter Sigma equals the Golden Ratio, which is used to enhance the attractiveness of artwork to the human eye. We would like to be seen by our customers as an organization striving toward perfection, with engineering expertise in metal stamping and excellent customer service.
