ESTERLE Mold & Machining Co. has diversified in a way that capitalizes on its decades-long history of providing superior engineering, mold-making, machining, and injection molding services to provide a unique product line: Tuf*Brand products.

Tuf*Brand Is a Philosophy

Tuf*Brand products embody ESTERLE’s engineering prowess, versatility in serving diverse industries, and well-controlled production efficiency, allowing for quick turnaround and competitive pricing.

Tuf*Tray was developed to meet a specific need in the foodservice industry. Replacing wood boards, Tuf*Tray provides food trays that will not splinter, decompose, or absorb moisture, preventing allergens and contaminants from compromising product quality and safety. Tuf*Tray products are durable, economical, easy to clean, and made from FDA compliant molded parts. Because they can be customized, they’re perfect for a variety of uses in catering services, self-serve cafeterias, hospital food services, bakery production, or buffet displays.


Tuf*Seat is a line of unique and versatile seating products. They bring a level of comfort and cheerful and bright or team colors into stadiums or grandstands, school and public pools, and other locations needing lift chairs or retrofitted bleacher seating. Like Tuf*Tray, Tuf*Seat is extremely durable and can withstand wind and weather without splintering, decomposing, or absorbing moisture. Tuf*Seat can be customized in several ways, as well, and has become a popular fundraising opportunity for school booster clubs and alumni associations.
