History of VSM

VSM was founded in Hannover, Germany in 1864, producing glass sandpaper manually. In just 9 years, VSM won a quality award at the Vienna World Expo. In 1929, VSM began to specialize in coated abrasives, and in 1932, established its own fabric processing plant.

After 1978, VSM established VSM Abrasives Corporation in the United States. In 1991, VSM established its own technical abrasive training center in Hannover. As an expert in cutting and surface finishing, VSM offers tailor-made product solutions and a range of customized products for strong partnerships.

VSM’s business extends globally, spanning three continents with Hannover as its center, and continues to expand in the UK, Oakville, Canada, Budapest, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, and China.

Operated in partnership with the two largest shareholders, STARCKE and PFERD Group, the company focuses on credibility, consistency, reliability, and durability. At the same time, the company has achieved above-average sales returns in this field.

Why choose VSM’s products?

VSM is unparalleled in its knowledge and experience in abrasives, and is not only a leader in abrasives and coated abrasive tools, but also holds multiple quality and safety certifications related to abrasives:

● VSM has ISO 9001:2015 certification as the foundation of its quality assurance system, ensuring that all departments of the company consistently provide products, services, and system improvements that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

● In 2015, VSM obtained Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) certification, an international certification that guarantees supply chain security from product manufacturers to end consumers.

● VSM is a senior member of the Organization for the Safety of Abrasives (oSa), an autonomous association of abrasive tool manufacturers. oSa members are dedicated to certified quality management through documented processes and the highest-capacity internal testing facilities. Three EN standards (EN 12413, EN 13236, and EN 13743) form the cornerstone of the organization’s safety concept. VSM is also a member of the Association of German Abrasive Manufacturers (Verband Deutscher Schleifmittelwerke, VDS), which is the largest national grinding technology association in Europe and a powerful contact partner for institutions and associations on all economic, political, and legal issues related to the abrasive industry.

In addition, VSM has top-notch ceramic grain technology. Its innovative particle technology is completely developed, produced, and continuously optimized in-house and significantly affects the performance characteristics of abrasives, such as the geometrically shaped ceramic particles used in the ACTIROX abrasive. VSM is also committed to cost savings for its customers by optimizing all process parameters (contact wheel, feed rate, grinding speed, and appropriate lubricant) to improve the efficiency of abrasives and achieve a 40% product cost savings by reducing waste, decreasing cycle times, and reducing downtime. VSM also offers customized products tailored to specific customer needs, whether these requirements involve surface quality parameter values or machining more parts per shift.
