Major Tool & Machine – Why Work For Us?


Established in 1946, Major Tool & Machine Inc. (MTM) is a contract manufacturer that supports original equipment manufacturers through their outsourcing of component parts and assemblies that require welding, machining, and manufacturing engineering services. 

Competing in a worldwide market, our specialty is building large, complex assemblies to close tolerances from all varieties of special alloys.  We serve our customers worldwide by offering a turnkey service delivering fully finished components and assemblies, either new or re-manufactured. 

We have a 600,000 sqft. world-class manufacturing facility, offering state-of-the-art machining, fabrication, inspection, finishing, and assembly services.

With our combination of world-class equipment, skilled employees, advanced technology, business & quality systems, engineering, and project management expertise, MTM is positioned to be the maximum value option for our customers.


In 1946, Charles W Davis founded Major Tool & Machine to support the commercialization of the jet engine following World War II. Starting with four men, Charlie Davis grew Major Tool by specializing in jet aircraft maintenance, overhaul tooling and ground support equipment. As experts in welding and machining they built precision engine assembly, disassembly tools, and all types of stands and dollies for OEM jet engine manufacturers to support domestic and foreign airlines.

In 1970 when Charlie Davis retired, he split the business ownership between his son Elmer Davis and John Weyreter; a toolmaker, engineer, and salesman. John became President and the two grew the business together until 1977 when Elmer Davis semi-retired and sold his ownership to John Weyreter.

Through the 1970’s & 1980’s John grew the business and helped develop new markets in the power generation, aerospace and defense industries. During this time, Major Tool received many industry awards for its’ quality work and ability to support critical programs.

In 1988 John’s son, Steve Weyreter took over as President and John became Chairman of the Board. In 1991 John became Chairman of the National Tooling & Machining Association, (NTMA).

Throughout the past thirty years, Major Tool continues to grow supporting the Power Generation, Aerospace, Defense, Nuclear and Commercial Industries.

Over these years, the heart of MTM has remained true, while growth, diversity, capability, capacity, and our people has allowed us to expand in depth and breadth.

Today, our 350+ employees proudly continue to serve our country’s needs, and the needs of our industry partners.

Though much has changed since 1946, our stakeholder values remain steadfast.

MTM has been fortunate to have two employees reach 50 years of service, and for their contributions have been gifted a new Cadillac for their efforts.

    I have been working at Major Tool & Machine full-time (More than 10 years)


    Working at a small company is very satisfying. It is a friendly environment and you always see people you know. This place is very cool to work. No two days are the same. I learn something new with each situation. If you want to be challenged and grow as a person this is the place for you. I've been here over a decade and plan on staying.


    It is hard to find something negative to say about this place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for the best and brightest new hires. We have set the bar high at MTM and our customers appreciate it.

    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Major Tool & Machine (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2017.


    The interview was during a job fair they held. I was interviewed by several people and I had to take a written and physical welding test. It was a painless experience and I had great interaction and feedback from the people interviewing me.
