HISTORY

In 1945, Don Tolli started the Tollman Spring Company in a small facility in Southington, Connecticut. Today, some 65-plus years after its founding, Tollman Spring operates from its state-of-the-art headquarters and manufacturing facility on Enterprise Drive in Bristol, as well as a nearby satellite facility, where more than 100 employees work together to design and manufacture a wide range of springs, wire forms, and four slide stampings and wire products for customers throughout the United States and the world.
