Numerous references endorse our work

A smooth and efficient procurement and production process is a critical factor for the commercial success of our customers. Read how our customers have optimised their production processes in the long run, together with us.

"The GARANT XTRIC offers an unbeatable price-performance ratio which we have never previously encountered. New features such as the changing of jaws have absolutely convinced us."

Christian Knödlseder, Managing Director, Kühberger Metalltechnik GmbH

"The new GARANT long life abrasive flap discs are of excellent quality and endure considerably longer than the discs we’ve had so far. It took only one test to sell me fully!"

Andreas Rotunno, Head of equipment construction and metalworking, KUKA Deutschland GmbH

"Thanks to the GARANT MCD indexable inserts, we are now producing turned components of such a quality that polishing is superfluous. That makes in-house production in Germany just as economical as purchasing the parts from the Far East."

Markus Schwermer, Managing Director, Stiemert Duschglas
