ANCA Tool of the Year Winners

Start submission

TURCAR took out top place in ANCA’s fourth Tool of the Year competition in 2021


Pat Boland, ANCA co-founder said, "Our industry thrives thanks to grinders’ expertise. Much of what people use and enjoy in everyday life is due to the hard work and ever increasing technical acumen of these cutting tool makers and as a result we are seeing the complexity of cutting tools increase, improving productivity, tool life and functionality.”

"Now in its fourth year, ANCA Tool of the Year has gained significant coverage – raising the profile of cutting tools and those companies who make them. I encourage all cutting tool makers to enter our competition and be recognised on a global stage for your craftmanship and contributions to our industry.”
