William “Bob” Mattingly Jr founded Central Kentucky Tool in 1970. Bob developed his craft in 1955 as a tool-maker for General Electric. In 2003 he sold the business to two of his sons, William “Bill” Mattingly III and G. “Terry” Mattingly and they grew the legacy started by their father. In April 2019, Sarah and Alex Smith purchased Central Kentucky Tool. Located in Lebanon, KY, Central Kentucky Tool has a rich history of manufacturing precision parts and fabrication solutions.
