About the brand

In the 1980s, Castool started their journey as ” Castool precision Turing and Honing”  when they used to produce hardened tool steels, liners, steam and containers for aluminum extruders.

In their field,  Castool was the first supplier for qualifying ISO 9000. They are also first to meet the stringent requirements of QS9000.
