We at Global Abrasive Products, Inc would like to welcome you to our new web site. Many of you may remember us as Future Abrasives, Duraline Abrasives, or Pres-On Abrasives. Each of these three companies, bringing years of abrasive manufacturing and distribution experience ranging from 15 to 55 years, merged in 2004 to become Global Abrasive Products, Inc. Our three manufacturing facilities, totaling more than 90,000 square feet, have a work force of over fifty experienced employees providing quality abrasive products to industry. GAP’s core values center on service, quality, competitiveness, and product breadth. Please allow us to explain in more detail our core values:
Service – GAP’s state-of-the-art equipment, lean manufacturing methods and continuous improvement programs are constantly pushing us to provide the very best delivery in our industry. Our commitment to service is evident in the vast inventory of stocked finished goods such as Belts, PSA and Hook & Loop Discs, Cut-Off Wheels, Depressed Center Wheels, Fiber Discs, Sticks and Stones, Shop Rolls, Floor Sanding Products and numerous other ready-to-ship abrasive items. GAP’s three converting plants produce Sanding Belts to 64” wide, Non-Woven Surface Conditioning Belts, Adhesive Backed (PSA) and Hook & Loop Discs, Rolls and Sheets. In addition, GAP produces a full line of abrasive specialties including Cross Pads, Square Pads, Flap Wheels, Flap Discs and many other finishing and polishing products. In addition to offering special coating and laminating services, we also manufacture our own line of Shur-Step Non-Skid Safety Tread. If a manufacturing plant is down, we hope that you think of GAP to get you the abrasives you need when you need them.

These manufacturers specialize in specific products, proven within the market place, allowing us to provide an all around top quality product offering.
