FET Engineering, Inc. was established in historic Bardstown, Kentucky in 1987 and began production operations in 1988. The company is a subsidiary of Kyokuto Seiki, a global tooling manufacturer with four plants located near the industrial port city of Nagoya, Japan. Our Bardstown plant, in cooperation with Kyokuto, supports the tooling needs of our customers worldwide.

Together, FET Engineering and Kyokuto Seiki design and manufacture a variety of industrial molds, including electroformed nickel, machined and cast aluminum, composites and other materials.



At FET, quality means more than just meeting specifications. More than half of our employees have been working here for over 10 years, and each team member has developed a strong personal pride in his or her work. Because of this rich experience, our people are the best in the world at what they do and our technology is cutting-edge.

We work to anticipate problems and implement countermeasures to ensure maximum lifespan of our tools. You can be assured that our dedicated repair experts will travel any distance to retouch, regrain, and modify tools onsite when needed. Warranty options for tools reflect our commitment to complete customer satisfaction.

The challenge to create products with higher levels of excellence is a goal we set for ourselves back in 1987. Now, 20 years later, meeting that goal has earned FET the reputation of an innovative and creative company that meets or exceeds our customers’ goals.
