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,

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. If you are

our products, click here.
