Internationalisation in the 1970s
International development of Gühring KG begins in 1973. This year the company opens the first foreign subsidiary in England. Also this year the first carbide tools are produced. These tools quickly become the standard for demanding machining tasks. Thanks to the tool material carbide and a special tool geometry they possess high performance capability and ensure outstanding dimensionally accurate holes.
Gühring makes the first step overseas in 1978 by founding a subsidiary in the USA. Consequently, the company early on provides a world-wide service presence for maximum customer satisfaction.
