MORRISTOWN, TN – Morris Wood Tool Co. Inc. purchased Connecticut Valley Mfg. Co. Inc. (also known by the trade name, CONVALCO), the world’s longest-running producer of Forstner bits. The seller’s New Britain, CT, manufacturing operations will be relocated to Morris Wood Tool’s Morristown factory, concurrent with a planned building expansion.

“As the longest active distributor of the CONVALCO Forstner bit, we are pleased for the opportunity to become manufacturer and steward of its long legacy. Our company will faithfully preserve the integrity of the tool’s unique design, even as we continue to incorporate new technology into our processes,” said Richard Goan, Morris Wood Tool general manager.
