About Our Company
MTD, founded in 1932 and headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, started as a tool and die supplier to the local manufacturing community.
Through hard work, dedication, integrity and an emphasis on customer service, MTD quickly gained a reputation as a high quality tool and die supplier. This reputation helped the company make the natural expansion into steel stampings. MTD became involved with consumer products by supplying stampings to the toy industry, but the company quickly began manufacturing complete products such as tricycles.
Wheelbarrows were added to the consumer product line in the early 1950s, and this had profound effects on the company's future. Satisfied customers encouraged MTD to expand the product offerings for the yard, and, in 1958, the company produced its first lawn mower. Today, MTD is one of the world's leading lawn mower companies, producing equipment for both residential and commercial markets. MTD Parts, a division of MTD, offers a wide selection of outdoor power equipment and replacement parts, including lawn mower blades.
MTD's engineering expertise and state-of-the-art facilities enable the company to continue creating innovative, award-winning products. This lawn equipment company has earned a reputation around the world for excellence in quality and service.
