Press release: JR-Tools Ltd to invest in new CNC tool grinding machine to strengthen its drill reconditioning service

JR-Tools Ltd, a Finnish manufacturer and reseller of special metal cutting tools for the metal industry, is investing in a new Schneeberger Aries NGP+ CNC tool grinding machine to further strengthen its drill reconditioning capacity. 

The new CNC tool grinding machine will be delivered in spring 2023. “In the past five years, the company’s turnover has increased by over 10% each year. The investment was a natural step for us at this point because there is an increased demand in drill reconditioning and our biggest clients still have a lot of growth potential”, says Pasi Rönn, CEO of JR-Tools. “We chose Schneeberger Aries NGP+ because it matches our existing machinery. We also want to further streamline our work in the drill reconditioning department”, adds Veli-Matti Uusitalo, Sales Director of JR-Tools.  

Together with the new machinery investment, the company is also improving its production processes. The whole personnel takes part in a Lean training by Finnish Humaanikone Oy. “While we are investing in new machinery, we also want to make sure that we keep developing our own internal processes at the same time. Our goal is to create a model for continuous development and also improve work well-being in the process. Skilled and motivated employees are our biggest asset”, says Rönn. 

In 2021, the company’s turnover was 2.6 million euros. During 2022, JR-Tools has continued to grow. “We are expecting a turnover close to 3 million euros this year”, tells Rönn. “Considering the large number of machine shops in Finland, there is a huge growth potential in the tool reconditioning business for us”, he adds.
