Antares Instruments, Inc. was founded in 1962 originally as a reseller of engraving equipment and accessories and a manufacturer of engraving tools and master copy type. Antares was purchased in 1980 by D.S. Donaldson, Inc. an engraving company, owned by David S. Donaldson. The two companies were later merged and continued operations as Antares, Inc. The engraving portion of the business was discontinued in 1990 and the company concentrated all of its efforts into the manufacture of cutting tools for the engraving and sign industries.
Johnson Plastics Plus has been a distributor and has enjoyed a close working relationship with Antares for well over 20 year. We maintain an extensive inventory of the various cutting tools for rotary engraving applications.
