About Us

10 years ago, we studied the market to find out how to make a meaningful difference, and this study revealed 3 crucial insights:

- Firstly, that steel is rapidly emerging as the most sustainable & reusable construction material

- Secondly, steel components hold the industrial world together.

- Finally, that there was a huge hidden pain point around making and modifying the connection holes that fasten these components together.

This realisation launched HMT as a new company dedicated to cutting tool innovation to speed up metalworking.
