Harvey Tool Voted #1 Top End Mill Brand for 2021; Helical Solutions Rises 6 Spots to 4th
Harvey Performance Company is proud to announce that their end mill brands ranked highly in the 2021 CNC Cookbook End Mill Survey, a questionnaire meant to gauge machinists’ most preferred manufacturers. For the fourth consecutive round, Harvey Tool has been voted #1 Most Popular End Mill Brand by survey participants, beating out Accupro, Kennemetal, YG-1, and OSG, among others.
Fellow Harvey Performance Company brand, Helical Solutions, saw incredible growth by ranking in the 4th position for favorite end mill brand, rising by 6 spots from the last survey in 2018.
“Since Harvey Performance Company’s acquisition of Helical in 2015, we’ve tripled its product offering of high performance tooling, launched Machining Advisor Pro, and offered more product resources than ever before,” said Harvey Performance Company Senior Vice President of Sales Jerry Gleisner. “It’s incredible to see the brand rapidly ascend the rankings of this survey with each iteration, and it’s a true reflection of all the hard work our team puts forth every day.”
In addition to asking respondents’ favorite end mill brand, the survey also gauged customers’ criteria when selecting end mills. More than 73% of respondents selected that they choose end mills that represent the best value combination of performance and cost. And, when asked about which brands represent this combination best, Harvey Tool finished first overall with 7.6% of the vote. Helical came in third place, improving from 12th position in the 2018 survey.
“Harvey Performance Company brands have long been focused on not only continued growth, but sustained excellence,” said Harvey Tool Vice President of Marketing Garth Ely. “The results of CNC Cookbook’s 2021 End Mill Survey are truly a testament to the hard work our entire team puts forth every day. We’re so proud that Harvey Tool continues to be viewed as the industry’s favorite end mill brand, but also that Helical Solutions continues to improve in this area.”
