hard metal technical partner

Hard Metal was formed in 1975 and over the past 40 years  have developed a unique understanding of the needs of the Irish Engineering Industry. They have promoted and developed high quality brands, working with Customers and Suppliers alike to bring the latest technology to the market.


The long-term survival of the engineering industry depends on our ability to compete with others operating from lower-cost countries. Hard Metal has recently focused on real cost reduction through increased productivity. This requires talented people with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to apply new ideas and innovations as quickly as possible. Hard Metal has therefore put in place project teams with extensive experience in the application of cutting tools and abrasives to work with their customers, on projects large and small – seeking better and faster ways to produce parts and maximise productivity.
