Kinkelder, a family owned business based in the Netherlands, was
founded in 1945 by the late Mr. Piet de Kinkelder. Today it
continues to be led by the Kinkelder family supported by a team of
highly experienced business professionals.
The Company, located in the East of the Netherlands, was
initially focused on the design and manufacture of agricultural
spraying equipment. In the early 1960's Kinkelder diversified into
saw blade manufacture and by 1964 had installed manufacturing plant
to produce HSS circular saw blades.
Since the mid 90's Kinkelder is not only specialized in the
commodity cutting tools but has in addition developed an enviable
reputation for application based sawing technology. Concentrating
on the specific dual challenges of sawing steel tubes, bars and
sections in difficult and exotic materials and at previously
unthinkable production rates, Kinkelder has developed a body of
technical know-how unmatched in the market.
A continuation of this strategic market approach saw the
introduction of the Connexxioncut coated carbide range of circular
saw blades in the early 2000's. Employing the same applications
based approach and concentrating on delivering predictable
production cost reduction to Customers, Kinkelder has become the
market leader in this new and rapidly growing market.
Kinkelder Saw Inc., the first subsidiary outside the Netherlands
was established in the USA in 1983. This was just the beginning of
numerous acquisitions of Kinkelder international offices.
