Since 1950, Fansteel VR/Wesson's Plantsville, Connecticut facility has been a leading supplier to the metalworking industry of highly productive cutting tools including carbide and ceramic indexable inserts, turning tools, milling cutters, and Tantung®, a proprietary cobalt-based cast alloy with superior metalworking and woodworking capabilities.

Located in a 72,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, the company's philosophy over the years has been one of flexibility and commitment to remain at the leading edge of technological change in the cutting tool industry. As a result, Fansteel VR/Wesson enjoys many long term customer relationships with companies ranging from smaller contract machine shops to some of the most sophisticated manufacturers in the world.

Today's cutting tool industry is largely in evidence at the Plantsville facility where advances in equipment and methods are supported by a highly skilled administrative and technical staff committed to growth through product development and continuing refinement of manufacturing methodology. At the same time, however, the staff at Plantsville maintains an ever present focus on three of business' simple truths...Price, Delivery, Quality.

Our commitment to our customers is simple and rock-solid..we will continue to supply latest technology products of the highest quality, on-time, at a reasonable price...period.
