Dan Stumpf, Operations/Purchasing Manager at Sea Air Space Machining & Molding

Thanks Brian. You're a life-saver!

Jeff Chenoweth, Plant Manager at Tylok International

It’s not what tool you use it's how the tool is applied. LGT recommended different speeds and feeds and we got 5 times the productivity than what the catalog house suggested. This saved us hours of machine time and hundreds of dollars.

Jeff at O-R Systems

You’re the most technical distributor we have!

Mark Wolhert

Thanks for the excellent service!

Jeff Szymanel, Tylok International

Thank you for your attention to details! You are a keeper! Lloyd Gage is a value-added supplier to Graham Packaging!

Marshall M. Miller

Reduced our costs between 66% and 76% on our two most popular inserts. Thanks to Brian's tooling applications experience, we are now able to buy three or four inserts for what we used to spend on just one.

Nick, CNC Foreman, Willoughby OH

The quality...helped us save over $1,250.00 on 1/2" [end mill] alone. Besides that, Lloyd Gage delivered them at no charge saving us freight as well.

Alberta, Purchasing Agent, Cleveland OH

Excellent personable service, technical support, availability, and performance have reduced our tooling costs by 40-60% across the board which we pass on to our customers.

Jeff, Assistant Plant Manager, Mentor OH

The SPG 630 inserts from ZCC ran as well if not better than the Sandvik inserts we've been running in a production environment for years and saved over $19.00 per insert. That's 63%. On this insert along we'll save thousands of dollars this year.

Alan, Engineer/CNC Operator, Valley View OH

You boys sure aren't built like most other distributor sales who won't know how to read a drawing. Thanks for your attention to detail!
