Simplified Tool distribution for local market.

Through its partnership with South Korea-based original-equipment manufacturer (OEM) YG-1, engineering equipment importer and supplier JTB Industrial Solutions (JTB) can supply the local market with YG-1’s range of cutting tools and indexable inserts.

YG-1 is a major global company that exports to more than 75 countries and has 27 worldwide sales offices. JTB is working with YG-1’s local subsidiary as an authorised reseller to distribute its product ranges in sub-Saharan Africa.

JTB is confident that the partnership with YG-1 will meet JTB customers’ drilling, milling and turning, and cutting tools requirements, explains JTB MD Joash David.

“On the indexable side, the solutions offered by JTB and YG-1 are very competitive with regard to the price-versus-performance ratio,” says JTB operations manager Peter Hughes.

The company has secured significant sales for these solutions by providing an “excellent product at a competitive price”, he adds.

Using YG-1’s products results in lower overall production costs for customers, as the products provide a longer tool life at a lower cost.

YG-1 South Africa GM Shaun van Deventer explains that YG-1 is competitive with regard to identifying machining-related specifications and materials, such as stainless steel, to suit its specifications.

The company focuses on providing better solutions for end-users and authorised resellers – such as JTB – and matching the solutions to end-users’ applications through comprehensive research and continuous development of new grades of inserts.

YG-1 provides effective machining solutions and reduces customers’ production costs through its product quality and continuous technology development, says Van Deventer…
