Innovation, perseverance and close attention to customer needs have characterized Kennametal since its founding. In 1938, after years of research,┬ámetallurgist Philip M. McKenna created a tungsten-titanium carbide alloy for cutting tools that provided a productivity breakthrough in the machining of steel. “Kennametal┬«” tools cut faster and lasted longer, and thereby facilitated metalworking in products from automobiles to airliners to machinery.

With his invention, Philip started the McKenna Metals Company in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Later renamed Kennametal, the corporation has become a world leader in the metalworking industry and remains headquartered in Latrobe.
