From dealer to manufacturer
Klingspor launches line of in-house diamond products
Haiger, 2nd of May 2015 — Apart from bonded and coated abrasives, users can now opt for premium-grade diamond tools, which are made in house at Klingspor and have now been adopted into the product portfolio. Klingspor's selection of diamond tools has been devised as a comprehensive portfolio suitable for all common applications and includes - at the time of its market launch - more than 40 products and 250 single items.
A recently established research and development division dedicated to diamond tools at our Haiger location and an additional, also entirely new production facility at the Lviv plant (Ukraine) guarantee that the tools will deliver outstanding performance and consistently high quality. Naturally, these new Klingspor diamond tools are oSa-certified and, in consequence, offer the highest possible degree of safety during operation.
"Our new range of diamond products turns our company into a one-stop shopping destination for our customers as we offer them a comprehensive range of services from development to production to sales, logistics and customer service", says Olaf ter Jung, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing, explaining the strategy behind the latest addition to Klingspor's family of products. "We can guarantee this level of sophistication because we can rely on our existing structures that offer both contacts on site and three hundred trained sales representatives and application engineers around the globe. Our customers benefit from professional consulting, a high level of availability and short delivery times."
Aside from producing diamond tools of superior quality, our new production facilities attach the greatest importance to compliance with the strictest environmental standards. Elaborate technologies used to filter foreign particles and suspended matter have made it possible to attain an air purity of 99%. All waste products produced during production are recycled or disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.
Klingspor has been setting global standards in abrasive technology for more than 100 years. Our production facilities manufacture more than 50,000 items that fall, among others, into the product categories of coated abrasives, cutting-off wheels, grinding discs, abrasive mop discs and abrasive mop wheels and that are designed for a wide range of different applications. Spread across the globe, our 36 production and distribution locations employ a total staff of 2,700 and afford us the flexibility we need to satisfy the requirements of each regional market. Our global consulting team is composed of more than 300 field representatives, highly trained technicians and engineers.
