JENNMAR plans to rebrand TungsteMet as XCAL Industries, which manufactures tungsten carbide blanks. The company said it will also form XCAL Tools  to consolidate several lines, including JENNMAR McSweeney’s, JENNMAR SANSHELL, Cuda Tools Inc. and JENNMAR Construction Tools.

“XCAL Industries and XCAL Tools will bring tremendous capabilities and increase our product offerings of tungsten carbide blanks and cutting tools with new hard facing capabilities for North America’s mining and tunneling industries,” said Tony Calandra, group president of Frank Calandra Inc. and Calandra Group LLC, which owns JENNMAR. “All products will retain their product name and we will be producing the same quality products made by quality people.”

Calandra explained that the company is constantly seeking ways to enhance the experience for miners. “This rebranding will not affect or delay any current business and business will continue as usual,” Calandra said. “Our focus and commitment to the mining business is guided by three words: safety, service and innovation.”
