Whittemore Company adds cutting tool manufacturer to portfolio


The Whittemore Co. has added the cutting tool brands of Precision Twist Drill, Dormer, Pramet and Union Butterfield to its already broad portfolio of products it represents.

These brands are manufactured by Dormer Pramet, which has North American Headquarters in Elgin, Illinois. The company has a history in America dating back to its founding in 1952 as Precision Twist Drill in suburban Chicago. While the Precision Twist Drill brand has developed a focus on HSS drills, the company has added other brands to complete its manufacturing portfolio including Union Butterfield for HSS taps, Dormer for high-performance drills, and Pramet for a complete indexable line.

Today, Dormer Pramet is a one-stop manufacturer for round and indexable cutting tools for milling, drilling, hole-making, and turning.

Russ Reinhart, national sales manager for Dormer Pramet, said, “We are very pleased to welcome The Whittemore Co. to our team. We have a passion for cutting tools and see great value in partnering with others who have a similar passion. Our team members work hard to grow business and ensure the needs of our distributors and end users are met.”

Dave Zaval, president of Whittemore, said, “Dormer Pramet and its long-standing heritage of exceptional cutting tool brands align with our company’s strategic direction. Together, I am confident that we will provide robust solutions to our customers’ metalworking needs. We are excited to enter our next phase of growth with Dormer Pramet on our team.”
