Our Story

Flexovit USA, Inc. is a USA-based manufacturer of high-productivity abrasives for portable power tools as well as complementary high-value products.

Flexovit USA was founded in Angola, NY by Mr. Jay Iliohan. The company mission, which remains firmly in place today under Mr. Iliohan’s ownership and vision, is to manufacture abrasive products in Western New York that deliver the highest value to users in industrial, welding, and construction trades.

Since producing our first wheels in the summer of 1977, Flexovit has remained determined to manufacture the very best, internationally-competitive industrial abrasives in the USA through smart growth and cutting-edge technology.

In 1995, a major expansion gave us a 100,000 sq. ft. complex. That same year, Flexovit became the first North American abrasives manufacturer to achieve ISO Quality Certification.

Flexovit has since expanded product distribution through four full-service distribution centers servicing North America - Angola, NY and Rancho Cordova, CA covering East and West USA, Brampton, ON, covering Canada, and Flexovit de Latinoamerica in Monterrey, Mexico, servicing Mexico and Central America.

In 2016, our Angola location was completely modernized to feature the most advanced automation and robotics equipment in the industry, enabling us to offer even more value to our customers.

Through each expansion and improvement, our commitments to performance, value, safety and service ensure we remain the most trusted supplier in the abrasives industry.

ISO Certification

Our Commitment to Quality Control

In 1995, Flexovit USA became the first North American abrasive manufacturer to achieve ISO 9001:2008 certification, reaffirming our commitment to continual improvement and total customer satisfaction.

ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, sets requirements and guidelines for creating a Quality Management System. Certified organizations must meet all requirements and undergo an audit by a third party registrar to confirm that they meet all standards.

In order to maintain ISO certification, Flexovit undergoes regular third-party and internal audits. We continuously review the various components of our system to look for opportunities to boost quality. We also measure and review customer satisfaction ratings, taking appropriate action when we find room for improvements.

For our customers, ISO certification guarantees consistent product quality, standardized packaging and shipping and continuous improvement. For Flexovit, ISO certification gives us a framework for being the best company that we can be.
