About Us

American-made. Employee-owned.

Who We Are

Founded in 1928, Rex-Cut is the oldest manufacturer of cotton-fiber abrasive grinding and finishing products in the world. 100% employee owned, we take great pride in the quality of our products and the level of service we provide here in Fall River, Massachusetts.

What We Do

We manufacture non-woven cotton fabric, uniquely embedded with abrasive grit. We have refined this process over decades to create the most sought after line of cotton-fiber abrasives on the planet.

Our products are specialized for use on stainless steel, aluminum, mild steel, and exotic metals. In addition to cotton-fiber abrasive grinding wheels, we offer many other premium products for use on a variety of grinding, deburring, cutting, blending, and finishing applications.

Why We Do It

Our mission is to provide the metalworking industry with high-performance abrasives that are faster, safer, and more efficient than any other abrasive tools on the market.
“Our focus is on providing solutions and customization of products that increase efficiency, safety, and improve the work environment of our users. This is all possible through a commitment and dedication to our employee owners and listening to our valued distributors and partners.”
