Who Are We?
We’re the company that sells CUTCO® Cutlery. Our people are diverse and fun (85% of our sales force is college-aged) and they love representing our world-class kitchen cutlery.
True, many of the people we work with never once thought about kitchen knives before they met us. But, they catch on quickly.
Vector Marketing is a single-level direct sales company that sells CUTCO®.
Early in CUTCO Corporation’s history, there were hundreds of small independent sellers of CUTCO®. In 1981, Vector Marketing was founded to be one of those independent sellers. From 1981 to 1984 Vector sold way more than all the other independent sellers.
In 1985, CUTCO Corporation (back then it was called Alcas Corporation) bought the company from its owners to replicate Vector’s success across the nation.
Now, Vector Marketing is the primary seller of CUTCO® Cutlery.
Our home office is in Olean, New York, and we have over 250 year-round, independently run locations throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Plus, we have over 300 more temporary locations that open each year for our peak summer season.
We’re glad you asked!
CUTCO® Cutlery is a high-quality line of kitchen cutlery, kitchen accessories, and sporting knives. CUTCO® has been manufactured in Olean, New York since 1949.
(That’s right: we are proud to be the only high-quality cutlery line still made right here in the USA.)
Over 15 million homes in North America have CUTCO® in their kitchen. Why? Because the knives are awesome… and guaranteed FOREVER. Our customers absolutely love them.
We sell over $200 million dollars of CUTCO® every single year.
What We Believe
We believe that in order to succeed as a company, we first have to help individual people succeed.
We believe that treating someone on our team as an individual is better than applying a cookie cutter management style to someone’s personality.
Our goal is to provide an exceptional work environment so our people can give our customers great customer service.
We’re Proud Because…
We’re one of the largest recruiters of college students in North America each year.
- Our people develop some sweet skills while selling CUTCO®, and they build a resume that can take them anywhere.
- Our people think it’s pretty cool to give back.
- Our people are diverse.
If you’re willing to work hard, have an open mind and a great attitude, we might be a good fit for you!
