Our History

Cape Fear Mold & Tool & Co., Inc. is an industrial machining and manufacturing company founded in 1996. The company is family-owned and operated by Bob Rockwell and son Mike Rockwell with a combined 50 years of experience in the mold-building industry. Cape Fear Mold & Tool Co., Inc., was founded to service the growing plastic injection mold industry in Southeast and began mainly repairing molds & dies. The company quickly moved into creating quick turnaround prototype molds and soon after into developing high quality production molds.

The original 6,000 square-foot facility, located in Wilmington, NC is a modern building housing the latest in mold creation and repair. Due to a shortage of space and more machining requirements, an additional 4,000 square feet was added. The additional space allowed for several new offices and machine purchases including a 3D printer. Our building, equipment, and staff are devoted to producing the highest quality product for our customers. We're proud of our high level of customer satisfaction.

We invite you to tour our shop and learn how Cape Fear Mold & Tool & Co., Inc. can meet your needs-whether it is mold construction, tooling, design, repair, polishing, precision welding or any of the other services we provide. We look forward to doing business with you.
