The courage to invest large amounts of resources in research (of its 400 employees, 40 are exclusively dedicated to research) has made it possible for SGS to create an important space for itself, in a little more than 30 years, in a market that is as difficult and crowded as the hard metal tool market. SGS is above all a solid company that, after successfully managing the passage from the first to the second generation, continues to grow both in volumes and in market penetration all over the world.
SGS produces hard metal tools for all production needs: from rotary files for manual deburring or superfinishing, to milling cutters, also including bits and reamers for the machining of the most sophisticated materials used in particular in the aeronautics and space sector, which has become an area of high specialisation for SGS over the past years.
The company is headquartered in Munroe Falls, in Ohio, but also has production facilities and a sales office in the United Kingdom, in addition to sales and support offices in France and Germany. The winning philosophy of SGS has been expressed by its founder John A. Haag and his children: produce quality. «Quality as the standard» this is in fact the motto that has always distinguished this company, for which Vega International Tools has exclusive rights for Italy.
