The purchaser had more to celebrate than just the delivery of the unit: The company is marking the 40th anniversary of the production site, which makes special drilling and reaming products in small volumes.

Kennametal’s Wild explained that an increasing number of his company’s customers ask for protocols as a matter of course from the measuring unit for special tools designed and produced in Nabburg.
