Commitment to performance


Our Story

The Forte Difference

Good businesses always have good ideas, but sometimes, you don’t really know how to bring those ideas to life. That’s where Forte comes in. We work together with you to design, tool, and create our customers’ envisioned machines that will help grow their business.

From acrylic to zinc, Forte has decades of experience working with a variety of materials. No matter what service we’re providing, we always strive for excellence through our quality-oriented approach while offering flexible solutions for your tool and die manufacturing needs.

From the beginning, we are there with you every step of the way, showing you 3D CAD renderings of your concept and how we propose to build it.

No matter what your specifications are, our tooling experts build your ideas from the ground up with integrity. Every job is different, so every solution demands a unique response. At Forte, we meet that challenge head on, always thinking outside the box, seeking to find creative answers for innovative designs.




Who We Are

The Forte Team

Hailing from diverse manufacturing backgrounds, the Forte team always relishes at the challenge of bringing our valued customers’ ideas to life. We have complementary skill sets and decades of expertise that allow us to view the problem from multiple perspectives, collaborate, and build customized products.

And we don’t stop there. To honour our commitment to safety and quality, we continually train and attend seminars to learn about the latest tooling, practices, and software.

Marco Peluso

General Manager

Marco is the General Manager of Forte, but more than that, he is Forte’s problem solver. He always makes sure that the customer’s needs are met, willing to work with them and collaborate to find the right solution for their business. He’s been at Forte since 2003, and in that time, he has continually innovated, seeking to improve Forte and the services offered.


Ralf Hallmann

Tool Designer

Ralf really is the ingenuity behind Forte, as he has been in the tool and die industry for more than 40 years. He works closely with many of our customers, offering them innovative tool and die solutions. He’s able to provide CAD models in Solidworks as well, so you can see your project in 3D.

Kaitlyn Hallmann

Office Manager

Kaitlyn is our exceptional point of contact. Over the years, Forte has been able to develop many great relationships with our customers because she is very friendly and capable of determining their needs, directing them to the appropriate specialist.

I will continue to work with Forte and can recommend them without reservation to others in need of tool and die services. I am happy to recommend Forte to anyone and trust their experience will be as positive as mine as a customer.


The people at Forte are nothing but helpful, often going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that every question is answered—even the questions we don’t know to ask. The entire team has been great, and I know I will always receive a timely and thorough response.
