As a highly valued partner in the Alliance Tools structure, Quickgrind provides high quality off-the- shelf solid carbide cutting tools in addition to meeting specialist tool design requirements where needed.

The UK engineering industry relies upon strong distribution networks, and this partnership offers a significant advantage over the standard distribution model by providing a fully coordinated, end-to- end service – which includes tools and support to increase productivity and profitability.

Between them, Quickgrind and Alliance can offer coverage across the North East, Scotland, Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Mike Stobart, South West Sales Manager at Quickgrind, explains: “As a business with more than 50 years of manufacturing behind us, it is important our distribution channels operate effectively and efficiently. Working with Alliance increases our geographical reach and capabilities. Our businesses operate on the same ethos of providing customers with top quality products and first class customer service. Having a mutual objective ultimately leads to us being able to deliver much improved service and support.”

Graham Curry, Director at Alliance Tools, added: “In an ever increasingly competitive global market, UK manufacturing must keep improving its performance and for that it needs to be confident that its supply chain can deliver the right quality tool at the right time. Providing an added value distribution service is a key objective for Alliance and we have chosen a select number of manufacturers to represent. A prestigious brand such as Quickgrind undoubtedly gives us a lead that will make a positive impact on our business.”
