Our company was established in 1936 and manufactured one of the first resin fibre discs in the United States during the early 1950's. The company was purchased by the Maran family in 1972 and began marketing Marvel abrasive products through industrial distribution. Armand Maran innovated and patented the Marveledge back-up pad along with the "island" pattern process for applying grain to resin fibre discs. Marvel Abrasive Products is one of the largest convertors of jumbo roll material in the United States. Our products include a complete line of non-wovens (discs and belts), resin cloth and paper belts, discs with mechanical locking systems and a complete line of back-up pads to compliment our resin fibre discs.
Headquartered in Chicago, Marvel Abrasive Products has a 60,000 square foot manufacturing, converting and warehousing facility. Other stocking warehouses are located regionally in Los Angeles, California; Dallas, Texas and Greenville, South Carolina.
Marvel's future direction is our uncompromising commitment to quality and to be recognized as the world's finest manufacturer of resin fibre discs. Our goals are to become more marketing driven than sales driven; learn more about the consumers of our products and develop additional "primary" products. We have escalated our support to our sales representatives and their distributor customers through a new catalog, product and application training, along with enhanced customer and technical services. We look forward to becoming your primary supplier of quality abrasive products.
