About Metalbor Ltd and trubor tools

Metalbor was founded in 1946, at a time when Sheffield UK tool manufacturing, although highly regarded world wide, had the character of a cottage industry, with hundreds of small companies manufacturing small volumes of specialist cutting tools. Most of these companies no longer exist, having been absorbed by very much larger multinationals, but Metalbor remains independent, and has grown over the years into a significant brand, by successfully responding to ever more rigorous demands for higher quality tools, and ever more efficient customer service.

trubor products are still made in two factories in Sheffield, UK, and still rely to a surprisingly large extent upon the knowledge and skills of the old craftsmen, but now working alongside, and complementing, even newer machine technologies, materials, and better quality-control disciplines.

World wide sales are made from the Metalbor HQ and export warehouse in South West London, utilising a network of distributors, many of whom have been associated with trubor products for many years.

New distributorships are, however, actively sought in many parts of the world. Metalbor has always had a policy of full support for distributors, and VERY competitive re-seller packages are available. If your company is interested in re-selling trubor tools, click here for further information.

trubor is backed up by the most comprehensive of stocks, covering thousands of types and sizes, in depth, and immediate despatch is possible for approved account customers. We strive very hard to make our service quite exceptional

trubor specials/technical. We are also very proud of our rapid and comprehensive service for SPECIAL tools (although Metalbor keeps within its standard stocked range very many types and sizes which would be considered special by other makers), and all customers are welcome to our technical advice and design help whenever it becomes essential to specify non-stock products.
