Our History

Sharp Tool Service was founded in 1985 by Richard R. Schirripa. Our father began operations in a 3,000 square foot shop with 4 skilled tool makers. Over the years, the company grew to a modern 45 man shop capable of manufacturing various types of special cutting tools and tool holders, as well as, re-conditioning and re-sharpening. He spent 50 years in the industry and built a unique organization involving his four children. Since his passing, Sharp Tool Service has reorganized yet, our mission remains the same:

Providing quality tooling with on-time delivery at a competitive price.

Motivated by our father's dream and legacy, our objective is to maintain a family business with a strong foundation for future succession. To insure our success, we insist that even the most basic customer request be treated with attention to detail and importance; thereby providing our customers with the confidence to rely on Sharp Tool for all their tooling needs. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to service your tooling demands.
