How To Use The Collection Catalog
ARCH® Cutting Tools has debuted its first fully integrated Master Catalog, that the company has titled “The Collection,” presenting the company’s complete standard cutting tool portfolio.
“We listened to our customers,” said Jeff Cederstrom, President – ARCH Cutting Tools, in making the announcement. “They called for ease of doing business and for a broader tooling portfolio with new and innovative stocked standards, that’s what we’ve done in our new Master Catalog, The Collection. Its refined format includes supplemental technical and application information to make selecting tools intuitive and straightforward and will serve as a platform for planned expansions of our product collection.”
The launch of The Collection coincides with the company’s start-up of its new state-of-the-art Centralized Distribution Center (CDC) in late 2020. Combined, the two further streamline how ARCH Cutting Tools can provide customers its product collection and its professional services.
The Collection is a comprehensive compilation of ARCH Cutting Tools standard cutting tool products. It showcases the rich heritage of high-quality American manufacturing that defines ARCH Cutting Tools. It also showcases the company’s expanded standard solid round tool offerings under the trusted KEO® brand name and its full indexable portfolio under the Ultra-Dex™ brand. The catalog integrates all heritage KEO products, a full line of micro tools, and a comprehensive new offering of Patriot High Performance™ milling and drilling tools in an Easy-to-Choose, Easy-to-Use™ format designed with the end-user in-mind.

“We understand and appreciate how valuable our customers’ time is, and The Collection was designed to be a tool itself, in a sense,” noted Marcus Ralston, ARCH Cutting Tools Vice President – Operations and Development. “It’s a tool that helps them quickly and efficiently find and order exactly what they need. We’ve added valuable technical and application information as well, all to make decision-making easier. We’re focused on helping our customers be productive, and with this new catalog they spend less time looking for the tools they need, and more time using them to make their products.”
Finding and ordering the right tool quickly and easily means little if you can’t get that tool quickly and put it to work, however. That’s the intersection of the ARCH Cutting Tools CDC and its new Master Catalog, Ralston explained.
“We spent a great deal of time throughout 2020 planning, organizing, and constructing our CDC at our Midwest Campus in Michigan. It holds the full breadth of our industry-leading standard cutting tools collection. With that project completed, we were then able to assemble this catalog that comprehensively, and in a straightforward way, presents those products to our customers. The CDC and The Collection combine to make a seamless, single source for our customers that meets their demands for high quality and quick turn-around.”
With the demands of today’s industry in mind, the ARCH Cutting Tools Master Catalog and its CDC deliver high-quality tools when they’re needed to customers, but there’s more to the company’s business than that, Ralston added.
“Our customer relationships are the most important part of our business,” he said. “With this integrated ordering and delivery system, our industry-leading professionals are actually free to spend more time with our customers, delivering the services and support they need to make their own businesses productive and profitable.
“We continue to provide the very best engineering and application consulting in the business, meeting the specific needs and challenges that face our customers with custom cutting solutions and innovative approaches – through both our expanded standard tool portfolio, and through our industry-leading custom tooling capabilities.”
The Collection from ARCH Cutting Tools, combined with its innovative CDC, make its products easy to access and demonstrate why the company is confident in its promise to the manufacturing industry to be: Your Complete Tool Making Authority™.
