ZCC Cutting Tools is the largest Chinese manufacturer of cutting tools. Since 2003, ZCC Cutting Tools Europe and our subsidiary in Düsseldorf have also opened up the European market.
An important aspect at ZCC Cutting Tools Europe is that everything comes from a single source. Due to the group structure that has grown over decades, the company covers the entire value chain from the rare resources to the high-grade cutting tool.
The Minmetals Group, the tenth-largest group in China with some 240,000 employees, heads the group. It has numerous mines, including tungsten mines in China. This ensures reliable supply with one of the most important raw materials for cutting tools. The metals obtained are further processed by the subsidiary Zhuzhou Cemented Carbide (short ZCC) to hard metal powder and hard metal rods. They form the basis for the cutting tools of ZCC Cutting Tools. The solid carbide bars are used to grind the solid carbide tools and to press the cutting edges from the carbide metal powder.
Through the Group’s structure, ZCC Cutting Tools is independent from external raw material suppliers, which is already an important advantage for customers in terms of resource constraints.
