Cost Savings Programs

Cost Savings Programs

US Tool has always been in the business of producing cost savings for our customers. From our humble beginning in 1958 as a local cutting tool reconditioner (reducing the cost per use of cutting tools), we have continued to identify practical ways to remove valuable time from the manufacturing process and reduce the cost of the indirect material needed to build our customer’s product. Today, US Tool is a leader in providing innovative cost savings programs that are more than just conceptual theories but, rather, real life strategies that can be realized immediately.

We work closely with our customers to develop a cost savings program that is meaningful and delivers measureable results through customized reporting and reviews. These cost savings strategies include:
