Need Standard Modern parts? You are in the right spot! In this post, we identify some common S-M parts and explain what they do.

First, a little history …

Standard Machine & Tool was founded in 1931 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.  In 1935, an unrelated company began operations in Toronto as Modern Tools Works. Staveley Industries, a British company, purchased both Standard Machine & Tool Ltd. and Modern Tool Works Ltd. in 1955. The combined entity was incorporated under the name Standard Modern Tool Company Ltd. with operations in Toronto.

In 1981, Standard Modern Tool Company was purchased by another company and became Standard Modern Technologies. LeBlond acquired the parts service business in 1999 to service 17,000 installations in North America, particularly in the Canadian and United States armed forces.
