The Tooling Emporium is owned and operated by machine tool industry veteran Denis Frankenberger, Brendan Noone, and Mark Coxon. Frankenberger, former owner of Advance Machinery, began his career in the machine tool industry in Louisville, KY in 1968. He grew his company to become one of the largest machine tool dealers in the U.S.
Advance was purchased by G.E. Capital in 1999 marking the only purchase of a machine tool distributor by a Fortune 100 company in the history of the industry. Brendan Noone is an experienced contact machining firm owner experienced in used machine tools and tooling as is Mark Coxon.
Together the owners of The Tooling Emporium represent more than 65 years of industry experience. We are a unique firm offering the machining industry an alternative to expensive new tooling and we back up all of our sale of used tooling with a money back guarantee.
