TKM - NEWS
We are cutting a new era:
TKM – The Knife Manufacturers
Over 100 years of experience in the production of industrial knives and saws. More than 1,000 employees on three continents in a good dozen companies, which continue to grow together under our joint TKM Group holding umbrella. The culture of an owner-managed group, combined with the dynamism of a global market leader in cutting technology; all these jigsaw puzzle pieces characterise our work.
Now we want to put the pieces together in a way visible for all. So from 1 October 2014 onwards, the individual companies of our group will consistently operate under the brand “TKM – The Knife Manufacturers” with a uniform image. In this way not only do we give ourselves a highly recognisable face fitting our international orientation, we highlight the fact that the united know-how of our experts around the world makes TKM more than the sum of its parts. In future we will conclude this with just two words: “Expertise United”.
Important to us is that although this new direction changes the appearance of “The Knife Manufacturers”, it does not change our tried and tested company philosophy. We are and will be your flexible systems and solutions supplier on whose expert staff you can always count. Just as you can on the combined skills under one strong group umbrella, on which TKM is everywhere now clearly and unambiguously displayed.
