Tooling manufacturer celebrates 65 years

Brian Salter, chairman of DK Holdings

ISO-certified manufacturer of Precision Diamond Tooling, DK Holdings Limited is celebrating its 65th Anniversary this month.

Speaking on the anniversary, chairman Brian Salter said: “I am extremely proud of our achievements over the past 65 years”, Brian Salter told the team in an interview to reflect on how it all began, how it is going and what the future holds in store. It all started in Marden, just a few miles from where we are now. John (known as Jack) Dawkins, a true entrepreneur, set out to produce electroplated diamond/CBN coated cutting tools principally for the engineering sector."

Brian credits a number of factors for the company’s continued success: “I must start with our greatest asset; our staff. A talented, creative and flexible team that has been willing and able to rise and adapt to all the challenges we have faced over the past six decades. Secondly, our longstanding relationships with customers and suppliers with shared values of honesty, decency and respect, build trust and goodwill.”

The company is to launch several initiatives to coincide with its anniversary and Brian concludes, “I look forward to the future with excitement”.
