Why Choose TGW

TGW has been a dedicated manufacturer of machine knives for the packaging, processing, printing and converting industries for more than 110 years. Our longevity is the result of the hard work and dedication of generations of employees selling superior products around the world.

TGW’s legacy is rooted in Sheffield, England, long considered the epicenter of the cutlery and machine knife universe. In 1908 our modern founder, Thomas Gilbert Wolstenholme, established his factories as a single-source provider for many of the leading manufacturers and knife companies in the UK and Europe.

Today, TGW is the global leader in industrial blade and knife manufacturing. We’ve established a reputation as problem-solvers, able to apply our vast machine knife knowledge to find or craft the best solutions for each customer’s application. Our experience has given us insight into the needs and challenges faced in the packaging, printing, processing, and converting industries.

Our dedication to providing our long- and short-term customers with the best-in-class service is what makes TGW the trusted choice for a diverse range of customers worldwide. We take the time to listen and seek to understand our customers’ needs. We want to be a valued partner to our customers by troubleshooting and providing optimal solutions to our customers’ most vexing challenges.

TGW’s reputation has allowed us to become the go-to machine knife manufacturer for OEMs across the globe. We have three locations around the world—headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, with locations in Sheffield, England, and Indore, India. We have the manufacturing capabilities and capacity to provide superior products crafted under strict quality control using OEM specifications, and our vast inventory allows for same-day shipping on many standard knives and products.

We use our deep understanding of machine knife composition to craft products of consistently superior quality, meeting and often exceeding OEM standards. We provide superior-quality material grades, hardness and finishes, as well as precise dimensional tolerances, providing our customers maximum yield.

We want to hear from you about your specific needs, no matter what your application. Upgrading the base material of your blade, along with applying a wear coating, will increase the life of your blades. Depending on your application and what you are cutting, our team can work with you to recommend the right material and wear coating to minimize downtime and provide consistent cut.

Contact TGW to discuss your application, and our specialists will recommend the optimal material and coating for longer wear for your specific application.
