Meister Abrasives has been the epitome of cutting-edge technological innovation since its inception: from the introduction of its proprietary vitrified superabrasive wheels revolutionary for the industry, through the highly specialized CERALOX products and the Vitrified-Micron (VM) technology for inner diameter (ID) grinding, to the industry-wide standard cubic boron nitride (CBN) and diamond tools in vitrified bonding – Meister Abrasives is constantly pushing the boundaries of the possible. “Innovation to us isn’t just a goal that is once achieved but rather a constant process and an attitude: boldness to go beyond what is already established, to step into the unknown; a constant stream of creation and transformation.” – comments CEO Frederik Dresen. That spirit of innovation, of disrupting established models in the industry is still what drives Meister Abrasives and makes it a global leader.
