Westcott: The World’s Favorite Scissors

 

Industry Pioneer

With over 140 years of history, Westcott has proven time and time again its reliability by providing thousands of customers around the world with exceptional cutting and measuring tools. The Westcott brand has been through three centuries, two World Wars and the Great Depression. Established by Henry Westcott in 1872 in Seneca, New York, the company grew rapidly and was run by the Westcott family for almost a hundred years. By the beginning of the 20th century Westcott was one of the top companies in the industry, selling products across the globe. Westcott was bought in 1968 by Acme United Corporation which today operates out of Fairfield, Connecticut.

Cutting and Coating Technology

Since 1872 Westcott has come up with new product advancements and designs.  We continue to develop products that are ground breaking yet functional. Revolutionary coating and cutting technology has made our patented Titanium Bonded Scissors® the most popular around the globe and has merited the title of “The World’s Favorite Scissors”. We not only make sure our scissors perform to the highest standard but we also integrate our technology into the blades of our sharpeners, paper trimmers, and craft tools. The sleek design of the iPoint® pencil sharpener is the perfect illustration of our vision.
