Makers of High-Performance Cutting Tools

Our History

Originally founded in 1979 as New England Tool; the company has had a long-tenured reputation for producing high-performance products. Bay State Carbide was acquired in 2007, the two companies merged in 2008 and the company renamed: CONTOUR360.

CONTOUR360 delivers products produced by a team who believes self-respect and pride has an impact on product quality.  With an average tenure of 10 years, CONTOUR360’s 40 employees have a collective 300+ years of experience. Their dedication to the core principle of integrity shapes how they do business — always being forthright and putting the customer, their partners, first.
