Tigra Tools
Mastercut Tool Corp
Amana Tool

We take pride in the fact that Cogent Tooling is not a “cookie cutter” tooling company. While we do have access to some of the industry-respected suppliers such as Whiteside Machine & Tool, Freeborn, Amana Tool, etc., we strive to seek out the relationships with the world’s absolute highest quality suppliers. Many of these are European companies you may not have heard of before.

Below are some of our unique suppliers. On their websites, you will find links to their product lines, much of which we did not include in our current catalog. It is just not possible, or practical, to combine all of these product lines into one catalog. Please take some time to peruse these websites. They may spark some new ideas.
