ART Group

Always the right tooling

'.$co_profile.'

Against the backdrop of modern production processes that result in increasingly shorter times to market, simple toolmaking is not successful any longer. This is why ART Group from Tilburg in the Netherlands has opted for a different approach to stay ahead in the market. The specialist in the development and production of dies and moulds has decided to focus on a unique one-stop-shop concept that is deployed at an early stage of the production process - delivering state-of-the-art tooling results.

'; } ?>

The merger of two Dutch companies involved in toolmaking enabled the implementation of a new business concept in tooling when it was rolled out in 2009. When GVW and SMS/WTS decided to join forces that year, they lifted the mere process of toolmaking to an advanced level.

“Synergies provide a clear advantage to both parties involved, as the combination of producing stamping dies and moulds allows for a wider range of options for our clients,” states Managing Director Nico van Wijnen, founder of GVW in 1989. “It was my clear vision to position standard tooling higher up in the supply chain. We aimed to transform from a simple contract manufacturer of dies and moulds to a company that provides a wealth of expertise and knowledge to support our clients’ production processes as best as possible.”

Today, ART Group operates a number of companies that work independently but focus on the same objective: They want to offer flexibility and reliability at a competitive quality/price ratio and provide customized dies and moulds. The new company’s name was chosen deliberately, standing for ‘always the right tooling’.

“We want to supply what the client really wants,” adds Sales Manager Jan Pije. Before ART Group sets out to develop and manufacture dies and moulds, it discusses the quality and added value of the product it delivers. “High quality is one aspect of adding value. We really supply a validated process and not just the tools.”

ART Group is also able to produce batches for stamped and moulded products, it can take care of the entire project management trajectory, and it functions as a system supplier for the client. The automotive sector generates about 50% of the company’s turnover, followed by the medical and the packaging industries, each realizing about 25%.

“Here, we work with one of two global suppliers of hearing aids, making moulds for metal and plastic parts. We also make moulds for disposable dailycontact lenses,” points out Mr. Pije. “Basically, we do anything around the human body – glasses, contact lenses, anything that is mass-produced – but we do not offer moulds for elements in the human body. The production of such moulds would require cleanroom conditions and specific certifications,” adds Mr. Van Wijnen.

For the future, ART Group aims to expand its concept and offer tools to make combinations of metal and plastic parts, instead of producing them separately and assembling them at a later stage. In the automotive market in Western Europe, the trend for local production will continue, providing huge potential for ART Group’s performance in this market segment.

In the medical industry, technological standards will remain high, and ART Group conquers this development with high-end products, higher accuracy and higher production speeds. ART Group has grown strongly against the general trend, and it plans to continue its successful concept, adjusting it to changing requirements in the market.
