Tooling supplier Ceratizit moves U.S. headquarters to Illinois facility


To centralize operations and continue to better serve its customers, tooling supplier Ceratizit USA, Inc. has shifted its official U.S. headquarters from Warren, Michigan, to the company’s Schaumburg, Illinois, facility location. Ceratizit acquired the Schaumburg facility when it absorbed the KOMET tooling brand name and product line under the Ceratizit Group umbrella.

Ceratizit USA offers a full-range product portfolio that spans 65,000 tooling products specifically focused on the needs of U.S. manufacturers. Under the name Team Cutting Tools, the portfolio includes solutions from Ceratizit as well as tooling under the Komet, WNT, and Klenk brand names. Ceratizit USA engineers and manufactures highly specialized, precision cutting tools for drilling, boring, reaming, milling, and turning.

“Ceratizit is not just a tooling supplier,” said Mirko Merlo, president of the Americas for Ceratizit Group. “We are a reliable partner with more than a century of experience and extensive industry and engineering knowledge. Because we encompass the Ceratizit, Komet, WNT, and Klenk tooling brands and technologies, we can provide complete tooling solutions and localized support that allow our customers in industries such as aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, medical, and transportation to increase their production output.”

In addition to its new headquarters, Ceratizit USA maintains two other facilities within the United States. Ceratizit Sacramento, LP is focused on manufacturing solid carbide round tools and micro tools located in Rancho Cordova, California, and the other facility is the company’s main logistics center in Towanda, Pennsylvania.
