Frank Wagner and his son Robert established Frank Wagner & Son in 1947. The first Wagner location was a modest building located at 605 South Palm Avenue in Alhambra, California a suburb of Los Angeles.

Frank's experience in the packaging business was far-ranging. He was a well-known innovator, and designed and made highly-specialized cutting punches, as well as designing the Eureka Bendall attachment, and the system used to grind steel cutting rule. This knowledge and experience made the Wagner name synonymous with die industry innovation.

Robert joined the company after serving in World War II, and after attending Purdue University. Robert supervised all cutting punch manufacturing for Wagner throughout his career. Frank Wagner & Son quickly grew into an industry leader, providing cutting edge service and technology to America's growing diecutting industry.
