While Bond Technologies was born in 2014 under its current name, most of the team and the company founders have been together much longer – under the forerunner company, Transformation Technologies, Inc. (TTI).
TTI was initially started in 1999 as an engineering service company. With an extensive background in aerospace tooling, one of the first projects taken on by TTI was the design of work-holding fixtures for the Eclipse 500 airplane, the first aircraft built with a friction stir welding machine. From 2003 through 2008, TTI grew and developed a full line of FSW machines. By the end of 2008, TTI was one of the leading suppliers of FSW equipment, with customers on four continents.
In 2008, Manufacturing Technology, Inc. (MTI) – a world leader in Rotary Friction Welding machines – acquired Transformation Technologies, Inc. (TTI) and absorbed the FSW product line under the MTI banner.
