As one of the earliest companies in Malaysia to venture into the manufacturing
of tungsten carbide tipped (TCT) toolings, Hardmetal Knives Sdn. Bhd. and its group of companies has achieved world wide recognition for the quality of their products. Our tooling products are well received in many technologically advanced countries like Japan, Germany, USA, and the rest of Western Europe. In 1999, we achieved formal recognition with the ISO 9002 and UKAS certification. In 2003 our quality management system was certified by SIRIM QAS International Sdn. Bhd. as being compliant with the new ISO 9001:2000 Standard. In 2017 we were certified to comply with ISO 9001:2015 standard.
Timeliness, Longer Tool Life and Product Availability have been identified as the key factors to our success in the global marketplace.
We continuously upgrade our information systems to ensure that we can keep up with our increasing sales volume and product range.
The entire process staring from receiving and order, designing, manufacturing and right down to invoicing the finished product to the customer is fully computerised. To minimise delays, delivery dates are monitored on a daily basis.
Every year our research and development team consistently add new items to our product line. New and better cutting materials were often tested and introduced to our customers. These customers were always happy with the savings in their operating costs as the result of the longer tool life.
30 years ago we started off as just a saw service company sharpening saws for the local sawmilling industry. Today our group manufactures more than 50 product categories of toolings for the woodworking, paper and engineering industries. In terms of number of items, we produce more than 10,000 items. We are probably the only toolings manufacturer in this part of the world that produces such a wide range of items.
