Mount Elliott Tool and Die is a Chrysler automobile factory in Detroit, Michigan.

Mount Elliott Tool and Die

It was built in 1938 by Briggs Manufacturing Company. Chrysler purchased the plant in 1956 and it became Outer Drive Stamping plant. The facility became a tool and die plant after Vernor Tool & Die closed in 1983 and moved their operations there. The facility was then renamed Outer Drive Manufacturing Technology Center.

After the "Pilot Operations" and "Advanced Stamping Manufacturing Engineering" were moved to Chrysler Headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan in the 1980s, the facility was renamed Mt. Elliott Tool and Die.

Mount Elliott currently employs around 300 people and is home to UAW Local 212.
