In 1932 production of hard metal was begun and the Stellram® brand name was born. Headquarters were established in 1940 in Nyon, Switzerland and over the next 70 years, Stellram expanded throughout the world, establishing distribution and manufacturing operations in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Stellram joined the Cutting Tool business unit of ATI in 1995.
Garryson Ltd was formed by Frank McGarry in 1977 based in Ibstock, Leicestershire, UK and pioneered such technology as the Abrasive Flap Disc for power hand tools. The main product lines today include tungsten carbide burrs, routers and abrasives as well as carbide endmills and drills under the Stellram® product brand. The company joined the Cutting Tool business unit of ATI in 2005.
In 1889 in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, A.B. Landis was issued Patent 409,208 for his self-opening, tangential thread cutting die head. Following a joint venture with his brother F. F.
