To truly be able to be an "abrasive resource" for our customers, we have researched abrasive companies from all over the world to find manufacturing partners. Companies who are able to give us the best combination of quality, price and service that will allow us to deliver honest value to our customers.
In this global marketplace, we take an interest in the standards of our vendors around the world. We have made a conscious decision not to align ourselves with suppliers in countries that have questionable labor laws, wages or environmental codes.
We seek out the best sources of abrasives and choose manufacturers that excel in the particular development and manufacture of specific abrasive products. We are highly dependent on partnerships we have been at pains to build with some very fine people and companies around the world. Some of them include the following companies:
sia Abrasives from Switzerland has been manufacturing coated abrasives since 1875 and is the third largest manufacturer in this field worldwide. They have manufacturing and warehouse facilities throughout North America to service our customers in the United States and Canada. sia has made a commitment to provide a quality coated abrasive product for our industrial customers.
Standard Abrasives is a U.S. company that designs and manufactures BriteRite® non-woven abrasives for metal applications. Since 1979 they have met the needs in industry with their innovative non-woven products. Standard's manufacturing plant is in California and their commitment to service is evident with every order placed.
We highlight different companies stories from time to time... both on this page and in our newsletter, The Finish Line. We are happy to share the name of our vendors with you – our catalog printers and web designers as well as the abrasive companies we are proud to have as supplier partners.
