TYROLIT and Asahi in new business alliance

Through a strategic business alliance, between the globally operating TYROLIT group and the Asahi Diamond group, both industrial companies are extending their assortment with selected product ranges in Europe and Asia respectively.

Customers, as well as both companies, will profit economically and logistically from created synergies and the complimentary know-how.

As one of the leading solutions providers for grinding tools, TYROLIT's aim is to offer as comprehensive a product portfolio as possible for a variety of industries.

In the bearing and gearing industry, TYROLIT additionally expands the assortment by adding selected Asahi dressing tools. For customers in Europe, TYROLIT will be a one-stop shop for any and all products necessary for the grinding and dressing process in these industries.

At the same time, the Asahi Diamond group is strengthening its leading market presence in the bearing and gearing industry in Asia by supplementing their portfolio with selected conventional grinding tools from TYROLIT.
