Independent has always stood above the rest when it comes to product quality and customer service. We strive to offer quick quoting and keep you well informed on delivery status. If you have tight deadlines we will work hard to meet your “just in time” requirements.

By maintaining broad material sourcing options we have been able to adapt to the evolving inventory requirements of our customers. We are always interested¬†in looking at new products and challenges so share your ideas with us and we’ll be happy to explore what we can do for you.

Most recently we have added a variety of knife steels to our inventory in response to a multitude of inquiries from local artists. This is an exciting and creative group we are eager to lend support to.

When it comes to surface grinding our exceptional Machine Operators are able to produce finished products that will shine under your scrutiny. We offer 1 through 6 sided grinding and strive to meet flat, parallel and square tolerances. In fact we pride ourselves on our ability to hit tolerances of 0.001″.
