A Family Run Business
Who We Are
Jarvi Tool, LLC of Anaheim, California is a family run business since 1974 that produces products which set standards throughout the lapidary industry for quality and reliability worldwide.
Jeff and Jeanne Jarvi run the day-to-day operations of the company. The quality goes in before Jeff will allow his name on any machine and tool. They pride themselves in offering you the Facetron machine which is 100% made in the USA and for their excellence in quality, workmanship and customer service.
Betty Jarvi received a faceting machine for Christmas from her husband, Norman. She was thrilled with it but needed another gear for a certain cut and tried to track down the manufacturer of the faceting machine.
Betty finally got to a man who had the machines’ blueprints. He did not have the gear that Betty needed and he told her that he could not make one. He then suggested that the Jarvis consider buying the company. That “company” consisted of blueprints and two boxes of parts. Son, Jeff Jarvi, looked them over and said he could build the faceting machinery, so in 1980, Jarvi Tool, LLC added a second division that is now Facetron.
Jeff manufactured all the parts, while Norman Jarvi assembled the machines. Norman passed away in 2002 and since his passing; Jeff has manufactured and assembled each machine himself.
40 plus years and 5,000 machines later,
Jarvi Tool, LLC/Facetron is still going strong.
The Facetron is sold and shipped worldwide. All parts are made in their shop and readily available to send to customers all over the world.
Jarvi Tool, LLC/Facetron is located in Anaheim, California. It is still a family owned and operated business. Jeff manufactures all the parts and assembles every machine. Jeanne Jarvi works in the front office and packages and ships all products. Their sons, during college breaks, help out in the shop when possible.
Robert Fleeger is head machinist and manufactures and runs the jewelers tools operation of the company. Robert has been with Jarvi Tool, LLC for over 30 years and is a very valuable part of Jarvi Tool, LLC.
