Our story begins in 1888, when Mr. Jan Kors Smit starts the trade in industrial diamonds from his home in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, quickly steering the firm towards great international success.
It is his grandson who later leads our team in New York, where the first diamond drill bit is developed. An invention that turns out to be a breakthrough that will change the construction industry forever.
We were there when creating space in stone, concrete and asphalt was still a complicated process.
Today, JK Smit Diamond Tools has acquired the knowledge to create diamond tools that are long lasting and cut through materials with all possible hardnesses with ease.
