Zapp Toolings Alloys, Inc.

Zapp Tooling Alloys is a division of Zapp AG headquartered in Ratingen, Germany. Zapp’s German tool steel operation, Robert Zapp Werkstofftechnif GmbH has been a leader in the distribution of PM Tool Steels and High Speed Steels for three decades primarily in the European and Asian market. In 2009, Zapp AG entered the North American market with establishment of Zapp Tooling Alloys (ZTA).

ZTA has over 100 years of combined managerial experience in sourcing, converting, and selling powdered metal products as well as solving the most challenging tooling problems. The management team is primarily comprised of former Crucible Materials Corporation managers with extensive knowledge of the PM tool steel and high speed markets. Zapp Tooling Alloys can offer you the finest combination of quality and value for cost effective tooling solutions.

ZTA’s business model focuses on PM tool steels and high speeds. Because of this focus on PM, we offer the best:

   1. Response time for our customers’ material inquiries.
   2. Lead times in the business. Since we don’t sell commodities, we cut and ship PM steels quickly and efficiently so you know it will ship on time or early.

Since 2009, ZTA has grown significantly. The initial service center was established in Summerville, SC comprising 18,000 sq ft of warehouse space and state-of-the-art equipment. In late 2010, Zapp expanded its service center network with the opening of a 12,000 sq ft service in Gurnee, IL to service the Midwest US market. With the opening of the Gurnee facility, we also made significant investments in additional high tech sawing equipment. In 2012, Zapp expanded the Gurnee Service Center to a total of 18,000 square feet.

With one of the largest inventories of PM tool steels and high speeds in the US, ZTA can offer the materials that you require. We also offer technical support to assist our customers in solving tooling problems.

Zapp’s service philosophy is simple:

SELECTION + SOLUTIONS + SERVICE + SATISFACTION = SUCCESS

Our goal is to develop “Customers For Life”.
