Press release date: May 13, 2014

East Granby, CT – G.W. Schultz Tool, Inc., a manufacturer of custom solid round carbide cutting tools, including high performance end mills and drills, has joined IBC as a Preferred Supplier in its IndustrialSupplyPlus division.

G.W. Schultz has a proven track record in the machining industry for its ability to develop highly- custom engineered tooling solutions – and for providing fast turn times on modified standards. The company also offers a full line of standard catalog products that are well suited for use in the automotive, aerospace, energy, medical, and armament industries.

G.W. Schultz differentiates itself from the competition based on its engineering expertise and its ability to turn around custom tools quickly – and at a fair price. “Distributors look to G.W. Schultz to help solve problems for end user customers,” said Adam Lafferty, Business Development Manager, G.W. Schultz Tool, Inc. “Our engineers are willing to take on tough metal cutting challenges that our competition won’t touch. Whether it’s creating a custom tool from a blueprint or modifying an existing tool for high-production cutting, we are able to develop a product and have it out the door in days or weeks – not months.”

According to Lafferty, the IBC network is a good fit for G.W. Schultz because many of its members “represent companies that started their business around machining. They spend much of their time on the shop floor and bring years of knowledge in the area of cutting tools.”

“G.W. Schultz is committed to providing IBC distributors with an extra layer of engineering support that can help knock the competitive products off the spindle,” said Nancy Schwind, Director of Business Development – Suppliers. “We are excited about the value they bring to the IBC distributor network.” G.W. Schultz also offers customer-specific regrind programs that help distributors create additional revenues and manage customer inventory.
