Established in 1917 in Cleveland, Ohio, the Cowles Tool Company began operations
as a milling cutter manufacturer. Shortly thereafter, the company was approached
by another local company who asked them to make a square-edge knife
for one of their lines. Cowles has been making slitter tooling ever since.
Our new upgraded facility boasts over 27,000 square feet of manufacturing space,
while offering a more efficient and streamlined plant layout allowing us to improve the
performance of our manufacturing, while getting our products to our customers faster
than ever before!
In our efforts to continuously improve our processes, efficiency, and products
we believe that this new plant demonstrates Cowles Tool's commitment to continuous
improvement, while still offering the highest quality products and services in the industry.
PIC or PERFECTION IN CARBIDE began its operations in 1959 with one goal in mind: to provide our customers with the finest carbide inlaid wear parts in the industry. While carbide-tipped work rest blades for centerless grinders were the first carbide tipped tools manufactured by PIC, it did not end there. Today, we supply manufacturers of steel, aluminum, plastics, wood, paper, refractory brick and numerous manufacturers of durable goods with carbide inlaid tools that help them to maximize the efficiency and productivity of the operations.
