KBC to celebrate 25 years in Canada

August 14, 2014 - KBC is celebrating 25 years with a taste of Canadiana. Since establishing its first Canadian branch in Toronto in 1989 – and branches in Windsor, Ont. and Vancouver soon after - KBC Tools and Machinery has enjoyed a tremendous partnership with the Canadian metalworking industry, which it will celebrate on September 18th at its Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ont.

Any KBC order placed in Canada on September 18th will include maple cookies made with real Canadian maple syrup, a special edition KBC Canada T-Shirt, massive discounts, and a chance to win $500 worth of KBC Tools by guessing the value of the tooling and machinery in the canoe on display and on the web.

And at the Toronto location, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on September 18, the showroom will be transformed to a slice of Algonquin.  Customers will enjoy Canadian back bacon sandwiches, bacon maple glazed donuts (veggie versions also), hobnobbing with the KBC team around the campfire in the woods, and live entertainment by Michael Schatte, one of Canada’s finest acoustic guitarists and songwriters… and other treats making this a truly Canadian celebration. Grab a camping chair, tie up your canoe over by the milling machine, and settle on down around the fire for a KBC Canadian thank you. 

For those not near a Canadian branch, KBC’s online presence features a digital, searchable version of its Master Catalogue, which boasts more than 100,000 items spanning cutting tools, carbide tooling, fluids, work holding, abrasives, measuring and inspection, toolroom accessories, hand tools, shop supplies, power/air tools, and machinery – with a brand new and improved website coming soon.
