A Brief History
Vector Marketing Corporation is the sole distributor
of CUTCO, “the world’s finest cutlery™.”
A high quality line of kitchen cutlery and accessories, CUTCO has
been manufactured in Olean, New York, since 1949. It was introduced
as a new product for Wear-Ever Aluminum, a subsidiary of Alcoa.
Alcoa sought out the expertise of the finest cutlery manufacturer
in the U.S. at the time, Case Cutlery in Bradford, Pa., to manufacture
the new cutlery line.
Cucto Cutlery grew through its commitment to innovation
in product development. Features such as the Wedge-Lock handle and
the Double-D® recessed edge enhanced Cutco’s performance
and provided a competition advantage in the marketplace. A management
buy-out in 1982 strengthened the company’s focus and led to
the purchase of Vector Marketing as a wholly owned marketing
subsidiary in 1985. In the early 90’s, Cutco expanded its
product line to include flatware and in 2000 they included garden
tools, an ice cream scoop, and a Bird’s Beak Paring knife.
Today, Cutco and Vector Marketing continue to grow, with annual
revenues as high as $197 million.
Vector Marketing - "Made in America"
CUTCO Cutlery’s history is steeped in tradition
and founded on the fine craftsmanship of early settlers to Western
New York and Northern Pennsylvania. The company, located along the
Allegheny foothills in Olean, N.Y., can trace its roots back to
skilled cutlers who settled in the area after immigrating from England’s
famous Sheffield cutlery industry in the late 1800s. Thanks to the
supportive community of Olean, NY, a dynamic sales model, and their
well known quality products, Cutco and Vector Marketing continue
to provide the United States with a “Made in the USA”
product. Featured in "John Ratzenberger's Made in America"
program on April 19, 2005, Cutco and Vector Marketing continue to
propel themselves into the future and take top honors with quality
products and an enthusiastic sales force, comprised mostly of college
students. This model has helped Vector Marketing put Cutco knives
