Established in France in 1961, TOMECANIC® was the first company to offer a complete range of tiling tools for French suppliers and distributors. The Company has successfully developed its brand and market share by providing innovative tiling tool products such as: manual tile cutters, electric tile cutters with a clever inner tile cutting system and a special mosaic tile cutter. These products have been very successful, especially the manual tile cutter, in particular, the top quality model called SUPERCOUP® made in France and sold worldwide.
In 1995, the French company TOMECANIC® bought BÉNETIÈRE®, founded in France in 1931, who enjoys a great reputation for having invented the first electric tool for shaping natural stone, they also offer a complete range of diamond blades.
Thus the two brands combined offer a wide range of products, including manual and electric tile cutters, hand tools and accessories for tiles, diamond blades, crowns and diamond drill bits and electric mixers, serving professionals.
Since April 1, 2014, TOMECANIC® and BÉNETIÈRE® brands are now part of the International QEP® Group.
