George Bullard knew he could make a better product. So he left his job as chief engineer of an abrasives manufacturer and went to work in his garage in Westboro Massachusetts making customized abrasive products. That was in 1927. Today Bullard Abrasives is a leading manufacturer of resin bonded grinding and cutting wheels. Located in Lincoln RI, Bullard Abrasives now occupies a state of the art facility with more than 100,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. Mr. Bullard continued to make innovations in his garage, inventing the square-nutted hub allowing for re-use on flat grinding wheels. He also created the system of color coding wheel labels based on their application. His inventions include the Type 29 blend and flex wheel to put more work on the surface and a sandaway product to cut, grind and sand surfaces. Expansion took Bullard Abrasives from the garage to a former meat packing plant in Massachusetts. In 2006, the company moved to its present Rhode Island location, adding a new 24,000 square foot storage facility in 2012. Also in 2012, Bullard Abrasives acquired Marvel Abrasive Products of Chicago, a leading manufacturer of resin fiber and ceramic based fiber discs.
