There are tooling manufacturers innovating new cutting tools every day in the UK, but Kyocera SGS Precision Tools Europe has a very specialist focus in manufacturing only solid carbide tools and continues to innovate bespoke solutions with considerable success.

The cutting tool manufacturer – located just 37 miles west of London in Wokingham – in an area not necessarily best known as being a UK engineering and manufacturing hotspot – employs more than 70 people across all functions, including in its factory where innovative new cutting tools are manufactured.
