Vector Marketing History

Vector Marketing Corporation and Vector Marketing Canada distribute Cutco Cutlery, a high quality line of kitchen cutlery and accessories. Vector's sales representatives schedule appointments and introduce prospective customers to Cutco through one-on-one, in-home demonstrations. Cutco products have been sold in just this way for over 65 years, and more than 16 million customers enjoy and use Cutco in their kitchens every day.

Vector Marketing was founded in 1982, and soon became the most successful independent Cutco distributorship. Recognizing that Vector offered a sales model for growth, Alcas Corporation, Cutco's parent company purchased Vector Marketing in 1985, making it the exclusive distributor of Cutco. Vector Marketing continued to build the business throughout the 1980s. In 1990, Vector Marketing brought Cutco Cutlery to a new market with its expansion into Canada.

In 2001 a Visitors Center is opened next to its corporate headquarters in Olean New York. The new center showcases the history and progression of Cutco and Vector Marketing along with displays of antique kitchen cutlery, military and pocket knives, as well as historical documents and photos.

With its unwavering commitment to quality products, and an unparalleled sales model, Vector Marketing Corporation continues to lead the way in the cutlery industry.
