In addition to supplying cutting tools, US Tool is a leading provider of coated and bonded abrasives, hand tools, power tools, safety products, aircraft specialty products, chemicals and other production consumable/MRO items.
US Tool offers customized solutions and financial business models, including a management fee/no mark up approach where program costs are supported by a program fee that is fixed for the term of the agreement. In the management fee model, program material is delivered at US Tool’s net delivered cost. In a typical management fee program, the support costs are significantly less (as a percentage of spend) compared to other Integrated Supply and Distributor programs where a traditional mark up is used.
US Tool’s Integrated Supply programs often include on site tool crib management and staffing, industrial vending, tool presetting, incoming cutting tool inspection, power tool repair, customer print management, FOD control and point of use kitting and other popular services.
