TDC South Africa
With significant TDC manufacturing and sales volumes on every continent apart from Africa, a decision was taken in 2014 to open a TDC subsidiary in South Africa. Its objective is to supply the African market initially with the Cleveland range of industrial cutting tool products, as well as the Cle-Line ranges of DIY products.
A stock hub has been established in Johannesburg, and TDC Cutting Tools South Africa (Pty) Ltd will import and distribute TDC’s industrial and DIY ranges of branded catalogue cutting tools products. Products that will initially be available include HSS Straight Shank Drills & HSS MTS Drills, with other cutting tool product groups to be phased in.
TDC is a global cutting tool organisation, established in 1995 by owner Jeff Chee, which today employs over 4,000 staff worldwide, spanning North & South America, Canada, Mexico, Europe and the Far East. TDC enjoys a 20% share of the global HSS cutting tool market – every one in five industrial grade HSS drills sold worldwide is manufactured in TDC’s cutting tool factories.
Part of the success of TDC has also been its focus on the successive acquisition of well-known world class cutting tool manufacturing companies and brands such as Werko in Germany, Manigley in Switzerland and Greenfield Industries in North America. Through these successful acquisitions, TDC today owns 14 world famous brands, including Cleveland, Chicago Latrobe, Vermont Tap & Die, Bassett, Cle-Line, Putnam Tools, H&G, Geometric, Vers-O-Tool, Acme-Fette, Werko, Manigley and Greenfield.
