Cutting tool developer Komet of America Inc. (Schaumburg, IL) has named CountyLine Tool (East Peoria, IL) as its first North American Komet Service licensed partner, providing customers with tool refurbishment services as well as Komet brand standard and made-to-order solid carbide tools.
Komet’s parent company, Komet Group, recently formed the Komet Service brand in North America. The company’s service network already has over 15 partners in four European countries, and Komet is rolling out the concept in North America, said Thomas Whennen, manager of Komet Service for North America.
Founded in 1984, CountyLine Tool is a cutting tool manufacturing and refurbishment specialist with a 10,500-sq.ft. climate-controlled facility. The company plans to mark its joining Komet Service with a grand opening to be held Feb. 28 at CountyLine Tool’s East Peoria facility. The event will also include a food drive to collect donations for the benefit of a local food pantry.
