Engineering for die tooling

CETC is a group of experienced engineers, who have spent most of their business life in the tool and die industry. We are respected technical consultants who have a deep, hands on knowledge of European tooling standards and Chinese tooling manufacturing. We started working with Chinese toolmakers in 2005.

Working with the Chinese requires more than speaking a common language. It is necessary to understand the difference between the cultures. To achieve this, CETC has German employees working permanently in China and Chinese associates in our German office.
