Die & Mold Bench Polisher - Job Description

Bronson & Bratton is looking to hire a Polisher for high precision steel and carbide tooling in a family-owned shop. Successful candidates have attention to detail, patience and the ability to distinguish small imperfections in metal parts.


Bronson & Bratton, a family owned shop, was founded in 1948 by Walter D. Bronson and William J. Bratton, who recognized the need for a company that offered both a dedication to quality customer service and the knowledge and skill to finish carbide. We pioneered the successful application of carbide in tools and dies used in many processes, including can lid forming, roll forming, seaming, straightening, and aluminum can drawing. Now in our third generation of management, our applications have since broadened into non-metal working areas, and we've expanded into the aerospace and medical markets. Our dedication to customer service has stayed consistent, and we work hard to identify and anticipate our customer's needs in order to provide the best solutions to their unsolved problems.
