development of cast steel abrasives. Ervin Industries is the largest manufacturer of
steel abrasives in North America and the leading exporter from North America.
Our Beginnings Explain Our Accomplishments
When John F. Ervin opened his first foundry in 1920, he brought with him a
salesmanís passion for customer service and an engineerís mind for product
His basic formula for success was simple. Know your customers. Sell them only
quality products. Adapt to new and changing markets. Never stop improving.
Mr. Ervinís pioneering efforts in blast cleaning materials led to new technologies,
processes, techniques, and applications -- discoveries that revolutionized the metal abrasives industry. The consistent performance of his high quality products
became the standard for all future advances.
The world has changed a lot since Mr. Ervinís day, and so has the company he
founded. But one thing hasnít changed. Today, we still apply the same creative
intelligence to every product we make, the same personal commitment to every
business we serve.
Itís what our customers have come to expect of us. Itís what weíve come to demand
Ervin Industries is proud to be recognized as a quality benchmark for cast steel
