The KEO brand is synonymous with quality and our products are used by the most successful machining businesses throughout North America and the rest of the world. In addition to center drills, KEO also is a leading supplier of countersinks, NC spotting drills,counterbores and keyseat cutters. All of these products are sold through our loyal distributor and catalog house customer base. In addition, these products are all manufactured in Warren, Michigan by a group of the most talented equipment operators in the world. Many of our employees have been manufacturing KEO cutting tools for over 40 years!
Our cutting tools are offered in high speed steel, cobalt and carbide versions, in most cases. In addition to our standard product offering, KEO Cutters also is a leader in the production of custom or “specials” tools to your print. Our talented engineering staff can even assist you with the development of custom tools to meet the unique challenges of your specific machining application. Recently KEO Cutters has expanded its offering to address international markets and international sales growth remains a top area of focus for the business going forward.
KEO Milling Cutters
KEO Milling Cutters, sister company to KEO Cutters, has been the recognized market leader in milling cutters for more than 30 years. KEO Milling Cutters uses the highest quality control standards to produce not only milling cutters, but also saw blades and customized “shank style” cutting tools for the North American market. Our tools are used extensively in the manufacturing of firearm components, as well as in several other industrial applications. We have a core group of skilled craftsmen that produce cutters, saws and shank tools on older equipment.
More recently, through our acquisition of Production Tool & Grinding in December 2013, we have added extensive CNC grinding capabilities and a wealth of experience in designing and producing custom carbide cutting tools for aerospace and power generation applications.

Headquartered in Russia, Ohio, Voisard Tool was originally founded in the 1960s as a regrind shop that was focused on supporting the cutting tool regrind service needs of local manufacturers in the Dayton area and throughout Ohio. In the 1980s the company purchased its first CNC grinding machine. Voisard Tool also started to make original tools, while still providing the regrind services that the market had come to know them for. Over the years the company has continued to invest heavily in CNC grinding technology and today Voisard Tool has more than 20 state-of-the-art CNC grinding machines that produce high quality cutting tools every day of the week.
As Voisard Tool grew over time, the company embarked on several facility expansions.

Little Rock Tools
Little Rock Tools (LRT) is a skilled cutting tool manufacturing facility located in Little Rock, Arkansas. LRT was established in 1963 to serve the growing demands of the Automotive, Power Generation, Aerospace and Defense industries.
LRT began its business as most cutting tool companies do; offering re-sharpening services. As the business grew, LRT ventured into standard altered step drills made from standard drills and then to manufacturing tools from bar stock.
LRT has a 44,000 square foot facility and manufactures what we call “special specials,” which is the more complex tooling that most cutting tool shops do not produce due to the complexity and difficulty of producing these tools. LRT specializes in high speed steel, carbide tipped, solid carbide, and CBN tools. LRT’s key to success is its ability to consistently solve their customers’ cutting tool needs and designing tools to improve the machining processes.
