April 18, 2012

Lincoln, R.I.-based Bullard Abrasives, a manufacturer of branded and private label resin bonded cutting and grinding wheels since 1927, has announced the acquisition of Marvel Abrasives Products of Chicago.

Orignially established in 1936 as Bates Abrasive Products, Marvel manufactures resin fiber and quick-change discs. The company recently incorporated the latest in laser-cutting technology, integrated “super-sized” resin technology, and launched two new ceramic-based fiber disc forms.

"This acquisition will continue to expand the United States manufacturing capabilities of Bullard Abrasives," said Craig Pickell, president of Bullard. "Marvel is a well respected name in the industry, and this move broadens our portfolio of products in the welding, construction, and fabricating industries," he added.
