Quality Specialist

We are Quality Specialists

VSM is dedicated to providing customers with superior products and solutions for their customer’s coated abrasive needs. Quality products are not just produced but are created through understanding the entire production process and how the coated abrasive product performs in an application. Additionally, VSM prides itself on vertical integration. Being vertically integrated allows us to control the entire manufacturing process from the formulating and blending of all resins, to the finishing of backing materials, to the producing and testing of all finished products.

All products manufactured in Hannover are computer controlled to assure consistency run after run. To double check this process, rolls of abrasive are quarantined for testing in VSM qualification labs before they are released to company converting plants. During this period, the rolls of abrasive are given grinding tests to check for durability, grain retention, flexibility, and other qualities to ensure product consistency. After VSM technicians exhaustively test and approve the product rolls, they are shipped to international subsidiaries and converted into products for hundreds of applications.

As a part of this quality process, VSM is proud to be ISO 9001 certified. This certification ensures VSM follows strict guidelines in producing quality products time and time again. ISO 9001 has been part of the culture at VSM, and is one of the key elements to producing quality products.
