As new products are developed in Hanover, Germany, they are shipped to international subsidiaries in the form of jumbo material. These manufacturing facilities then convert the material into the final product form based on end user specifications.
In 1978, the subsidiary known as VSM Abrasives Corporation was established to meet a growing demand for coated abrasives in the United States. Just outside St. Louis, Missouri, this location offers manufacturing, customer service and technical support to customers across the country. And, with over 2,000 rolls of jumbo material on-hand, customer requests can be processed quickly.
