Swiss cutting tool firm achieves greater quality with ANCA tech

F.O. Select, which specialises in the manufacture of key cutters, cutter wheels and fine tooth cutters, competes successfully in Switzerland by investing in ANCA technology.

Loïc Jacot, fifth generation family member of F.O. Select, said: “Our business was founded in 1886 by my great great grandfather when he started manufacturing razor blades. At the beginning of the 20th century, the multinational company Gillette entered the European market and Arnold Schumacher decided to diversify the production with different cutting tools.”

“Our customers like the fact that we are still a family business. We have 130 years of experience in the production of tools. In general, we can say that we work with all main key cutting machine producers on the market. Since all people in the world use keys you need to cut millions and millions of keys every day. The market is niche but worldwide.”

Production-wise the company has leading-edge technology that combines traditional craftsmanship with modern manufacturing methods.
