Apr. 23, 2018 – The precision tooling company founded by Heinz Kaiser in Rümlang, Switzerland, is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.

In 1948, 25-year-old Kaiser decided to give up his permanent job and start his own business near Zurich, Switzerland. His vision, the company explains, was to advance the development of high-quality tools needed to keep pace with the increasing productivity of machine tool technology at that time. The result was a range of CKB (KAB) tool and clamping systems for boring, milling, drilling and external turning.

Now a member of the Big Daishowa Group of companies, Big Kaiser Precision Tooling has grown over the past seven decades to become a worldwide manufacturer of high-precision tooling systems and solutions for the metal-cutting industry.
“It has been 70 years since Heinz Kaiser started his success story with strong will, much faith and a little bit of luck. Many things have changed in the world of manufacturing and technology, but the quality standards of Big Kaiser Precision Tooling are unchanged. We want to say thank you to our customers, friends and supporters over these 70 years,” said the company in a press statement.
