First Cut - Total Cutting Solutions

Welcome to the First Cut Website!
For more than 65 years years, First Cut has been on the cutting edge of industry in South Africa. Ours is a company that has stood the test of time, through cyclical global economic challenges and decades of growth, consistently delivering the expert advice and superlative consumables, capital equipment and service which our customers have come to expect.

Our strong partnerships – with an enviable portfolio of industry-leading suppliers and a well-established customer base – are also testimony to First Cut’s ethos of always looking to be ‘one step better’ and having a ‘can-do’ attitude; as well as uncompromising levels of integrity, honesty and transparency at all times.

In addition to innovative new blades and other cutting consumables, steel cutting techniques are changing drastically as new design possibilities and applications are opening up, driven by the quantum leap in laser fibre cutting technology.

This new technology has far-reaching applications in a number of industries. At First Cut, we are looking to assist more of our local customers in transitioning to this technology so that they can experience the productivity, energy-saving and financial benefits it can bring.

First Cut’s 65 years of commitment to the cutting industry enable a proudly South African experience on a global scale. Dedicated and knowledgeable staff and engineers are available for advice and support, creating peace of mind in the knowledge that our customers’ equipment – and therefore their operations - are in good hands.

It’s our ‘can-do’ attitude which has ensured that we have remained industry leaders for six decades. We look forward to using our skill, expertise and knowledge to best supply your cutting needs for the next six decades – and beyond.

Chief Executive Officer
