After 108 years of patience, faith, and undying loyalty, the Manor Tool Family and the rest of the City of Chicago can happily howl CONGRATULATIONS to our boys of the Chicago Cubs for winning the 2016 World Series.
It is with great sadness and loss that Manor Tool must announce the sudden passing of Ken Pickens, our Quality Assurance Manager and Specialist for over 19 years.
In his tenure at Manor Tool, Ken implemented the ISO 9001:2000 and ITAR Compliance program that is currently used by Manor Tool today.
Manor Tool & Manufacturing Company has been a family owned and operated business since we were founded by Lee Simeone in 1959.
At Manor, Lee always sought to treat his employees well, with dedication and kindness — with a sense of family. Though he has passed, Lee’s legacy remains strong at Manor Tool. Today, his son Tom and his son-in-law Ken Galeno foster the same sense of family.
Manor Tool has been holding Kaizen Events at our facility for a number of years. Kaizen, literally translated as “change for better,” is the Japanese philosophy of constant improvement.
In Loving Memory
Schiller Park IL. – It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Lee Simeone, Founder of Manor Tool & Manufacturing in Schiller Park, IL.
As the Bears didn’t even make the NFL playoffs, we have no rooting interest in the Super Bowl this year. HOWEVER, this doesn’t mean we won’t be setting up shop at home to watch the game. Aside from our normal spread of chips, chicken wings, and sausages, we will be making one of our favorite cocktails invented by Michael Morford.
