Workholding and tooling companies join forces

Tooling component manufacturer Jergens Inc. has acquired Bock Workholding Inc.

Bock has its U.S. headquarters in Ford City, Pa., and sales partners in Europe, Asia, and Australia. It is a manufacturer and distributor of workholding equipment for vertical and horizontal machining centers and flexible manufacturing cells.

Bock offers a large selection of workholding devices, including twin production vises, locating systems, 5-axis vises, and more.

“Bock’s and Jergens’ combined product lines are a perfect fit,” Sean Stapulionis, general manager for Jergens’ Tooling and Components Division, said. “Adding the Bock people and products

offers the opportunity to broaden our offerings in vises and quick-change fixturing. Our customers will still have access to the Bock team and to the products they know,” he added.
