Dormer Pramet buys cutting tool manufacturer

Dormer Pramet has acquired Wetmore Tool and Engineering, a privately-owned US-based manufacturer of customer-specified HSS and solid-carbide cutting tools.

Based in Chino, California, Wetmore Tool and Engineering is a manufacturer of adaptive shank drill technology, as well as fasteners, reamers and rivet shavers. The company specialises in cutting tools for hand-held skin-drilling applications performed by several global aerospace organisations.
As part of the acquisition, Wetmore becomes a product brand of Dormer Pramet, alongside its current Dormer, Pramet, Precision Twist Drill and Union Butterfield assortments. Jerome David, CEO at Wetmore Tool and Engineering, will continue in his position and play an important role in overseeing the transition as a member of Dormer Pramet’s senior management team.
