Their Bessey cutting technologies are now leaders in metal cutting snips and represent a tradition in the manufacture of a comprehensive range of tin snips going back more than 70 years.

Incoming raw material shipments are tested according to the most modern processes. New product prototyping is exacting to ensure product durability and ergonomic function. Final production is reviewed carefully using modern statistical methods to ensure performance specifications are being met.
