Tri-V Tool & Manufacturing Company
Tri-V Tool & Manufacturing Company was founded in 1984 by Dave, John and Jim Vyhlidal and has enjoyed steady growth since its inception, evolving from a tool and die shop to a diverse manufacturer. In 2003, the company obtained ISO 9001 approval. In 2009, investments in new equipment and the purchase of another company, CSE Automation of Omaha, have kept growth on track. The company continues to add new state-of-the-art equipment and processes including a water jet cutting machine and high-speed machining center.
It is one of few job shops with high-rise pallet systems on the horizontal machining centers. Aware of environmental concerns, Tri-V has converted to all water-soluble coolants, reducing hazardous waste to near zero.
Actively committed to the community, John and Jim are involved in the Nebraska Advanced Manufacturing Coalition’s “Dream!t Do!t Initiative,” encouraging students to consider rewarding careers in manufacturing. Tri-V also sponsors a “High School to Career” program, where students can work part time at Tri-V, with successful candidates receiving tuition reimbursement for completion of the Machine Tool Technology program at Southeast Community College.
