Hard materials group CERATIZIT has announced plans to further expand its business, with the establishment of a new WNT subsidiary in Sweden.
In the same year as it celebrates its 25th anniversary, the WNT group’s new Scandinavian subsidiary is set to open on May 1st. Based in Stenungsund near Gothenburg, Sweden, WNT Scandinavia AB will supply precision tools to the metal cutting industry throughout Scandinavia. “The continued expansion of WNT shows yet again the diversity and progressiveness of the CERATIZIT group. This applies both to our products as well as to new markets, regions, sectors, industries and customers”, explained Thierry Wolter, member of the board of the CERATIZIT group.
Lars Strungat, the new Sales Manager at WNT in Stenungsund, has more than 15 years’ experience in the metal cutting industry in Scandinavia and is highly enthusiastic about the establishment of a local subsidiary. “Being close to our customers is vital for providing the highest levels of individual service. When our Swedish catalogue is published on 1st June 2012, our full range of products will be available to the Scandinavian market for the first time.”
Claude Sun, Managing Director of the WNT group adds that the company will deliver its range of over 45,000 precision metal cutting tools to customers throughout Scandinavia within 24 hours and they are aiming to achieve 99% availability. The company will also have a team of experienced engineers on hand to provide support and advice to customers.
