March 2023 - acquisition of Assets from Industrial Tools Inc

We are happy to announce our acquisition of a number of machines from Industrial Tools Inc, a pioneering manufacturer of ultra-thin and high-precision cutting blades in the United State.

By integrating these assets into our Valencia, CA location, we aim to ramp up the production and output of our diverse range of diamond & cbn dicing blades and precision cutting wheels.

Founded in the 1960s, Industrial Tools Inc was one of the earliest and largest American manufacturers specializing in precision and ultra-thin blades.

While it is unfortunate to witness the closure of such an established American player in the field, we see this as a chance to explore new opportunities and horizons.
