One of the world’s major manufacturers of end mills for the mold and die industry, Union Tool Europe SA of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, has appointed SVM Freestechniek of Valkenswaard, Netherlands, as its new distributor for the Dutch market.
SVM is owned by Hans Smits, who has many years of experience in CNC high-speed machining.
“SVM has a complementary portfolio of products,” says Smits. “The addition of the Union Tool end mill range fits perfectly into this. This complete solution strategy and experience we offer will be invaluable in launching this new partnership, offering the support and service demanded by new and existing customers and helping them with hardmilling.”
SVM has already started building up its stock so that it can offer fast deliveries from its facilities, with back-up supplies from Union Tool’s main European supply base in Switzerland. This will ensure continuity and reliability for all users.
The agreement was made official at the EuroMold show in Frankfurt this past December.
