KOMET of America, Inc. is proud to announce their tenth Partner to join the KOMET SERVICE® network, Razor Tool. Members of the media are invited to a ceremony on May 13 at Eastec, whereby KOMET will recognize Razor Tool, marking the official launch of KOMET SERVICE in New England.


CHICAGO (May 4 2015) – KOMET SERVICE®, which has attracted attention both in Europe and in North America since its inception in 2008, continues to turn heads with its rapid expansion, which includes Razor Tool of Stoneham, Mass. The continued addition of KOMET SERVICE® Partners reaffirms both KOMET’s commitment to the platform and ongoing customer demand for affordable, reliable, quality refurbishment and manufacture of solid carbide tooling.


At Eastec on Wednesday, May 13 at 2 PM, KOMET of America will officially recognize Razor Tool as a KOMET SERVICE Partner in a brief ceremony. Members of the media are invited to Booth 5648 for the event; photos and videos will be authorized, and the Razor Tool and KOMET teams will be available to answer questions. Razor Tool will also be exhibiting with KOMET and New England Tooling for the duration of Eastec 2015. Show visitors are encouraged to stop by the booth, where they will be able to meet the founder of Razor Tool, Tony Mardiros, and the Director of Channels and Manager of KOMET SERVICE, Tom Whennen. Both will be available to answer any questions about KOMET SERVICE and the products and services it provides.


New England will now have a KOMET SERVICE Partner in Razor Tool of suburban Boston, who can locally respond to their solid carbide tooling needs. The KOMET SERVICE team has worked with Razor Tool to train them in the quality control practices and state-of-the-art engineering and tool grinding for which KOMET is known. Razor Tool has also received training in best practices for marketing, as well as a complete marketing and branding package, which is just one of the added benefits of being a KOMET SERVICE Partner. KOMET’s dedicated support will continue throughout the life of the Partnership.


“I cannot overstate how exciting this is for all of us,” said Tom Whennen, Manager of KOMET SERVICE in North America. “The energy – shared by us at KOMET and by our new Partner – is palpable. The growth we’re experiencing is a sign of things to come. In particular, the addition of Razor Tool makes our winning platform more local for the New England market.”
