Weiler Abrasives, a provider of abrasives, power brushes and maintenance products for surface conditioning, began celebrating its 75th anniversary at the company’s National Sales Meeting April 22. The months-long program of celebration will aim to thank customers, workers and the community for contributing to the growth and longevity of Weiler Abrasives, which began as a small jewelry polishing brush business.

Founded by Karl E. Weiler in 1944 as the Weiler Brush Co., the company continues to be privately owned and operated at its current headquarters in Cresco, Pennsylvania, under the fourth-generation leadership of Chris Weiler, CEO. His father, Karl M. Weiler, serves as chairman. The company now has 1,300 employees across eight different countries, but it still does business with its first 1944 customer. 

“We are proud of the growth Weiler Abrasives has undergone in its 75 years in business and the innovation it brings to the marketplace,” says Chris Weiler. “The hard work of our employees, our customers’ loyalty and the support of our community have been the backbone of our success.”

Weiler Abrasives will be offering a variety of promotions in the coming months. It will also host employee activities, including a family Fall Harvest Celebration in October at its headquarters, which will close out the anniversary celebration. In addition, the company will organize several activities to engage the community in its celebration.
