ITC Expands Team With BIG KAISER Expertise
In April 2015, Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) officially announced that it was the new UK re-seller for the BIG KAISER brand of precision toolholders, boring tools and accessories. Marking the anniversary at MACH 2016, ITC unveiled a number of promotional deals and also a new technical sales manager to continue the sales growth of the marquee brand.
The collaboration has proven extremely successful during the first year and ITC has committed further resources to promoting the technical benefits of the BIG KAISER brand by employing Mr Neil Vine. An engineer with an accomplished career in the manufacturing sector, Neil served his apprenticeship as a mechanical engineer with Freudenberg before entering the realm of cutting tools. From a tooling manufacturer, Neil moved to the Hoffman Group to progress his career.
Neil spent a proportion of his career working for Walter in the UK and Australia before moving to a cutting tool distributor as a product specialist supporting the BIG KAISER brand. Speaking at MACH 2016 in only his second week with ITC, Neil said: "Who wouldn't want to work with the BIG KAISER brand? Its quality is unsurpassed. Providing you speak with educated engineers, BIG KAISER virtually sells itself. The opportunity to work for ITC, supporting the technical sales engineers whilst working directly with end users to build the BIG KAISER brand in the UK, was something too good to miss."
"If an engineer is using high-quality cutting tools, then regardless of supplier, the benefits of changing from one to another may be marginal. However, if you can improve the concentricity, the precision, the clamping forces and rigidity of a tool - the benefits can be massive. This is what BIG KAISER brings to the table and its something that is often overlooked. My aim is to educate engineers, change their perception and deliver unparalleled performance improvements," concludes Mr Vine
