In the early part of 2016 HMK Ltd was acquired by Arkote Ltd of Sheffield. The two businesses have a long standing relationship, supplying Tungsten Carbide knives to the Tobacco industry.

Arkote is the world leader in knife supply to the global Tobacco industry and the HMK acquisition expands the total product scope and provides security for the future of HMK.

Tungsten Carbide is an extremely versatile, highly wear resistant material. Over the past fifty years it has been introduced into almost every industrial processing or machining operation undertaken.

From the smallest ball in the end of a ball point pen, through to spraying nozzles, machine knives, woodworking bits, metal cutting and forming tips to complicated progression press tooling. There are few items in today’s world that have not had some association with Tungsten Carbide tooling in its manufacturing process.
