ACME United Europe GmbH is part of the ACME United Corporation, the leading worldwide supplier of branded cutting, measuring and safety products. With its exceptionally broad product portfolio, the company serves both the private sector and the commercial B2B sector. Our high quality professional series are at home, both in the trade and industrial sectors and in the food processing industry. ACME United is a tongue-in-cheek way of saying “anything that’s sharp”. Over the years, our core competence in all aspects of cutting tools and blades has expanded into a comprehensive specialised assortment of products, making the company a reliable problem solver for every need.

ACME United brings together a balanced portfolio of international brands that is organised according to market segments. Based on the office segment, each of these brands is distinguished by its independent positioning and specialisation. In Europe, ACME United focuses primarily on the traditional brands WESTCOTT®, CLAUSS® and DMT, supplemented recently by the segment brand FIRST AID ONLY®.

In addition to these (and other) global brands, ACME United also focuses on its proven core competence as a worldwide market leader in the production of its own brands: the sublime refinement of first-class materials, combined with precise workmanship for each individual product. Whether world brand or private label, our claim to the highest brand quality is noticeable in every ACME United product - and that with the cost-effectiveness of a group with global operations.

The success of ACME United has always been based on innovation. The Group management is committed to meeting the highest demands of the market and consistently incorporates customers’ wishes into its product development. The Group’s own research and development department is always working on new designs; patented product features and functionalities create sustainable additional value through ease of use and utility for the user. A great example of this are our high-performance and patented titanium nitride coatings which enhance properties of all types of scissors and blades. Or the antibacterial and non-stick features of professional knives in gastronomy. The growing portfolio of patents and utility models guarantees our quality aspirations for the end consumer and provides our retail partners with the crucial competitive advantage. And this applies worldwide.
