Varbros, LLC – Trimline Die

Varbros is a world class, high production metal stamping company located in the Cleveland area. The company focuses on parts that are difficult to stamp, have complex tooling, and require tight quality control.

Varbros began as a small 700 square foot operation in 1951. The company has grown to include three companies in three facilities totaling more than 200,000 square feet in the suburbs of Cleveland, OH. In 1958, Varbros began production of parts for a revolutionary product, the disposable spin-on oil filter. The in-house processes for these parts include progressive dies and unique tapping tooling that make the company one of a very limited number of production facilities in the world for these products.

Supplying parts that require high quality critical applications, Varbros currently produces components for the heavy-duty truck aftermarket, automotive and consumer industries. Operating under QS9000 and ISO 9002 standards, all three companies focus on high volume, complex parts and avoid low-end, low volume stampings.
