Progress Design and Machine was established in 1966 in Clyde, Ohio. The company designed and built machines for the crankshaft and camshaft industries as well as custom machinery for other industries. Toledo Automated Concepts (TAC) was founded in the late 1980s in Toledo, Ohio. In December of 1990 TAC joined Progress. In 1994, TAC purchased Sun Tool and service all Sun Tool machinery, as well as offer machine upgrades or replacements.
In 2008, TAC passed a milestone with producing our 500th glass-drilling machine.

Today Progress Design and TAC work in several industries including Automotive Glass, Architectural Glass, Solar Glass, Crankshaft, Camshaft, Automotive, Appliance, and Specialty Machines.
