About us


Case-Maul Clamps began making clamps in Mansfield Ohio in 1953 under the name of Case-Maul Manufacturing. The company moved in 1994 to Norwalk when the two families who owed the business split and James Maul the son of John Maul (one of the founders) took over the toggle clamp business and renamed it Case-Maul Clamps. The company makes a standard line of US made clamps many featuring cast iron bases. The company has provided custom clamping solutions to a variety of top US companies including Caterpillar. In 2006 the company began a partnership with Steel Smith to provide Destaco compatible clamps to customers in the US. This partnership has grown since then and now Case-Maul is the largest stocking distributor of Steel Smith product outside of India. In 2016 Case-Maul was made the exclusive distributor for Steel Smith products in all of North America and now sells products in Canada and Mexico as well as the US. In the fall of 2017 Case-Maul and Steel Smith teamed up to exhibit at the Chicago Fabtech meeting in Chicago where an expanded line of clamps that are stocked in the US were displayed.
