Unlike many other "distributors" within the manufacturing industry, we pride ourselves that 95% of our business is cutting tools and associated products.

With the ever increasing problems of a reducing skilled workforce as a result of natural wastage & retirement, it is becoming ever more evident that many companies are in need of support on a technical level.
We have the ability to look at your specific application & then offer recommendations on both tool selection, and even strategy if so required. 

Too many companies will offer multiple makes and brands of products dependent on what is available at the time.This can be very shortsighted as it may not necessarily be the optimum product for the application & material. We have developed relationships over the past few years with tooling partners who we feel are experts in their respective fields.It is these long term relationships that help us maintain our technical expertise in an ever more technical market and the products & services we are able to offer.

We believe that with our choice of tooling partners, and our ongoing investigation & evaluation of future partners, this will benefit both our existing customers and potential new clients far into the future.

For more information on the services we can offer please see below.

Due to the varied industries within which we have worked over the years, at the same time we have developed close working relationships with a good number of tooling partners who each have their own strengths in specific areas & industries. Because we have a technical approach to each application we will always recommend the best fit solution based on application, material, and price performance.

Some of our tooling partners are detailed below
