Thursday 10 June 2021

US-based cutting tools manufacturer GWS Tool Group has acquired Canadian manufacturer Indexable Cutting Tools, Inc, the company said.

This is the third acquisition in 2021 for GWS Tool Group, and the first international acquisition by the US based manufacturer.

Located in Welland, Ontario Canada and Edmonton, AB, Canada, Indexable is in the manufacturing and distribution of ceramic, PCD and CBN inserts.

For more than 50 years, mastery of insert production and precision cutting technology has provided manufacturers around the world with an edge in operational efficiency.

The company supports an array of the world's largest manufacturing companies with its products.

From automotive and powertrain customers to commercial and defense aerospace manufacturers, Indexable has used its model of quality and flexibility to deliver what few others can.

With six global patents surrounding their microwave sintering processes, Indexable can output ceramic inserts with ultra-fine-grained microstructures that yield increased hardness, toughness, and thermal stability versus traditional ceramic grades in the same categories.

Their emphasis on quality, which is supported by their ISO9001:2015 certification, aligns perfectly with that of the ongoing quality signature GWS demands.

With the addition of indexable, GWS further solidifies its position as the premier multi-disciplinary manufacturer of high-performance cutting tools in the marketplace TODAY.

GWS Tool Group is a US-based, vertically integrated manufacturer of highly engineered custom, standard, and modified standard cutting tools, primarily servicing the aerospace and defense, power generation, automotive and medical sectors.
