KBC’s Focus


KBC Tools & Machinery has been in business for over 55 years in the Metal and Metalworking Industry – providing brands and parts that industry trusts with speed and value. We do business in 11 product categories, and we stock over 100,000 SKU’s. Some parts are large machines, but the majority of our business is selling many thousands of small, complex, integral parts, every single day. We serve clients that primarily work with M.R.O., metal, and most manufacturers of products across North America. We sell directly to companies, schools, government agencies and we also have quite a DIY following as interest beyond the shop creeps into personal life. While KBC enjoys such a rich history in the distribution business across the USA and Canada with a primary focus on B2B, we pride ourselves on our modern ecommerce platform and growth through website business that was added in 2008. We also have one of the most robust paper distribution marketing campaigns to boot, and when you put it all together, we have a tremendous following and customer base across North America!

With a strong, tenured management team, KBC has established itself as a unique player in our industrial space with several main differentiators from many competitors. We stock and sell both Tools and Machinery, and we have locations in both the US and Canada – and with our own Proprietary Branded Machinery and Tooling Lines, Brand KBC, there aren’t many players that match up!

With customer friendly showrooms our customers are encouraged to pop by any KBC branch to have a coffee, check out our many machines and precision instruments on display, and talk with the friendly team regarding their tooling and machinery needs. With over 100,000 items, from over 600 suppliers – we have some pretty cool stuff!

KBC – ALL METAL...ALL THE TIME – Industrial Metalworking Tooling & Solutions Since 1965 - KBC is great!
