The World Standard for Quality

As a family owned company we have maintained our belief in doing everything the best possible way since the 1920s, when our founder John F. Ervin first developed the steel abrasive casting process, still used by producers today. We are the original and the best.


Furthermore, our quality measurements have become the standard within the industry – the Ervin Test Machine is the benchmark for all competitors. Every single product in our range is instilled with the innovative, pioneering spirit of John F. Ervin. The World Standard for Quality is the standard we set ourselves, and the promise we make to all our customers and partners.
