WNT – Cutting Tool supplier with connection to the cycling industry
WNT is CERATIZIT Group’s competence brand for mass distribution and regional sales, offering high quality cutting tools and a unique service to small and medium-sized enterprises. The Ceratizit Group is a privately owned company, based in Mamer, Luxembourg, which develops and manufactures highly specialised carbide cutting tools, inserts and rods made of hard materials as well as wear parts. With over 9,000 employees at 34 production sites and a sales network of over 70 branch offices, the Group is a global player in the carbide industry.
Cycling has a close connection to WNT products. Many bicycle components are manufactured using metalcutting technology. Important customers, such as the British firm Hope Technology or the Spanish company Rotor Bike Components, use WNT's quality tools to produce their high-quality bicycle parts. Therefore cycling sponsorship is an ideal marketing tool for WNT to increase brand awareness and make products more accessible to the general public outside of the narrow target groups. Despite this, cycling embodies exactly this same spirit, which is already present within the company and its values.
