Kennametal has been the global distributor of ROMICRON® for the past 14 years, and entered into an agreement with Industrias Romi S.A. in July 2008 to acquire its ROMICRON® technology and manufacturing. The ROMICRON® technology and manufacturing will be integrated into Kennametal's Indaiatuba, Brazil location and will help to strengthen the company's market leading holemaking and precision hole finishing portfolio.

"The addition of ROMICRON's® high precision boring systems to the Kennametal portfolio will expand our capabilities to offer holemaking solutions from roughing to fine finishing," commented Paul DeMand, Kennametal Vice President and President of the company's Metalworking Solutions and Services Group. "We believe that together Kennametal and ROMICRON® can capitalize on unique world-class technologies to deliver value, service and solutions to our customers worldwide."

This acquisition is in alignment with our growth strategies and further supports our goal to geographically balance our business and capitalize on market opportunities in the emerging economies.
