At Machine Tool & Supply, we're proud to be celebrating forty years of excellent service to the machine tool industry in Jackson, Tennessee. Founded by James C. "Pete" Wilson in 1967, MTS started as a small warehouse storefront on O'Connor Street. "Mr. Pete" retired in 1994, but even at age 89 still checks in occasionally with Mark & Ramona Yates, his daughter and son-in-law who oversee the business he began. Mark & Ramona have worked for MTS for 40 years and they take great pride in seeing Mr. Pete's venture continue to be a success.

Over time, we have grown and expanded our market to become the first name in tools and supplies in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. With the expansion in the year 2001 to our new custom-built warehouse facility in the Wright Industrial Cove development, we now have over 20,000 square feet of space and room to grow.

Our new revamped Web site is the next chapter in our growth. Users all over the country will be able to take advantage of our best service, high quality products, fair prices and quick delivery. As our customer, you are the key to our future, and we thank you for forty years of success!
