In the early 1940’s Oscar Pax started a local farm equipment repair business on the family farm. The business evolved into a tool and die repair shop for a few area businesses. In 1948, Pax Machine Works officially incorporated and eventually began building new tools for local businesses. It wasn’t long until a tryout press was required and the production of precision metal stampings began. Today, Pax continues as a family-owned, fourth generation company and is still located on the family farm.
