Flexovit celebrates 40 years

Abrasives manufacturer Flexovit announced that it is celebrating its 40th year in business in 2017.

“Since making our first grinding wheel in July 1977, Flexovit has followed a course of continuous quality improvement and manufacturing innovation,” said Pierre Hawkins, director of sales and marketing. “This year we are proudly putting the finishing touches on one of the most advanced grinding wheel factories anywhere in the world, right here in the United States.”

The company manufactures abrasive grinding and cutting wheels as well as flap discs at its plant in Angola, New York. Flexovit USA markets an array of bonded and coated abrasives, non-woven abrasives, carbide burs, wire brushes and construction diamond blades. Flexovit operates four distribution centers in the United States, Canada and Mexico, offering same-day delivery to authorized distributors throughout North America.

In 1995, Flexovit was the first American grinding wheel manufacturer to achieve ISO Quality Certification, and is currently working toward the latest ISO 9001 standard.

“Flexovit has overcome its share of challenges,” said Hawkins. “Flexovit is very confident that the combination of continuous quality and process improvement, a focus on the customer as partner, and the diligence of our exceptional workforce will result in growth for years to come, right here in Western New York State.”
