Thomas Kelly: Hard Metal General Manager

Spend on cutting tools is usually around 5% of the cost of a component. Yet tools which allow machines to operate more efficiently with reduced cycle times can result in 20% to 50% increase in productivity. This has a dramatic effect on the competitiveness and profitability of any business. Hard Metal has more than 40 years' experience providing productivity solutions to the Irish Engineering Industry. Thomas Kelly, General Manager of Hard Metal Machine Tools, explains: "The long-term viability of manufacturing in Ireland depends on our ability to compete with lower cost countries by having superior quality and productivity. "Hard Metal works with customers and suppliers to find better and faster ways to produce parts and maximise productivity. Our focus is on cost reduction. We provide the latest metal cutting and abrasive tool technology from the world's leading suppliers and back it up with the technical knowledge that yields real productivity benefits."
