All Robust lathes and accessories are made in Robust’s own machine and fabrication shop in Barneveld, Wisconsin. The items they don’t make are made to their specification by nearby manufacturers. For instance, all of the castings come from Austin Foundry in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, started just after WW II. Many of the CNC machined parts come from Production Machine & Enterprises in Madison, Wisconsin. Laser cut parts come from Laser Dynamics in Allendale Michigan.
Robust Tools proudly certify that all their products have a US content of over 85%.
Robust was founded January 1, 2004 by Brent and Deb English and is a limited liability corporation.
