KEIR Manufacturing Announces Acquisition of SpeedStone Product Line

KEIR Manufacturing, Inc of Brevard, NC is pleased to announce the acquisition of the SpeedStone product line from Blackstone Supply LLC of Eugene, Oregon.  The SpeedStone line of resin-bonded jointer stone abrasives for automated wood jointing operations was developed by native Eugene entrepreneur Rory O’Byrne. This product line is the first American developed resin-bonded abrasive to exceed the performance of the primary sourced German and Austrian jointer stones. The complementary blending of the SpeedStone line with KEIR’s vitrified abrasive jointer and profiling stones gives KEIR a complete offering of superior abrasive stones to the international woodworking market. Mr. O'Bryne will continue to be involved in the company with a consulting and technical relationship with KEIR.

KEIR was founded thirty-four years ago as a make-to-order advanced materials company producing industrial parts made of advanced ceramics, carbon composites, and engineered abrasives. Today KEIR sells to over 1,500 customers in 43 countries serving many industries. KEIR’s brands are the market leaders in most of the markets they serve.
