A Tradition of Excellence in New Jersey

High quality dies, unsurpassed service

Founded in 1975 by Sanford Emil, Rule One, Inc., first manufactured steel rule dies out of a storefront in Newark, NJ, later moving to a larger facility in Nutley, New Jersey.

Established to provide precision steel rule dies to companies and manufacturers in the Northeastern United States, Rule One, Inc. gained a reputation for superior quality machined dies delivered on-time across the nation.

Rule One, Inc. became a regional leader in the production of hand-crafted dies for enterprises of all sizes. Roger and Eric Emil joined the business in 1976 and Eric continues its tradition of excellence today. Sanford Emil retired in 2004.
