Two industry leaders in the tungsten carbide world join forces to serve the U.S. market. Sinter Sud has named Castlebar Corp. its exclusive distributor in the U.S. for all its Premium Carbide Products. The addition of the Sinter Sud product line to Castlebar’s already expansive carbide offerings, will greatly increase product availability for tool makers across the U.S.
“Castlebar was chosen because of their reputation in advanced machining and carbide substrates knowledge catering to aerospace customers in the US, which is a great fit for Sinter Sud,” said Attilio Puggina of Sinter Sud. “We couldn’t be more excited to be the exclusive distributor of this premium Italian-made carbide. We strive to help our customers improve performance with new products, as well as improve support and value with our fully stocked warehouse, exceptional customer care and quick response times. And with our new Sinter Sud line, we now truly have a full offering for all our customers’ needs,” said Jen Rohrer, general manager for Castlebar Corp.
Castlebar now has a complete offering of all Sinter Sud products, from solid and through-coolant rods to flats and bur blanks. Most of which are available and stocked through Castlebar Corp., located in Canton, Ohio. With the addition of the Sinter Sud product line, Castlebar feels it will be able to expand its reach in the toolmaking industry by offering this premium carbide for applications that demand it.
“We know our customers have uncertainties in the carbide market regarding foreign trade agreements, we are so pleased to be able to offer our customers several grade options and manufacturing locations, now to include Italy! Plus, with our exclusive distributorship for Sinter Sud products we will be able to better maintain inventory management, traceability, quality material and engineering solutions for all our customers.” said John Adamski, CEO for Castlebar Corp.
