Sanders Saws celebrates 50 years

Sanders Saws Inc., one of the most respected names in cutting tools and diamond blades, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Founded in 1953 by Eugene Sanders, the Honey Brook, Penn., manufacturer serves the professional concrete contractor and the masonry, refractory and quarry industries. Sanders Saws’ product line includes a full line of concrete and masonry saws, diamond core bits, diamond blades, and grinding heads.

Under Eugene Sanders, the company was among the first to develop the popular hotpressed process, which blends powdered metals and diamonds to produce superior diamond blades that cut faster, wear longer and are more cost-efficient. In 1983, current president Robert B. Priest purchased Sanders Saws. The same year, the company acquired Mission Diamond Products of Mission Viejo, California, which was then renamed CPR Diamond Research Division and relocated to Sanders Saws’ headquarters. In 1985, Sanders Saws added diamond blade manufacturer Wispurr Cut of Vancouver, Canada.

To accommodate the rapid expansion, improve production efficiencies, and continue its goal of high quality manufacturing, the company moved into a new manufacturing plant in 1992. A decade later, Sanders Saws was acquired by California-based Multiquip Inc., one of the world’s leading light- and medium-sized construction equipment suppliers.

Today, Sanders Saws Inc., a Multiquip company, continues to thrive as one of the premier manufacturers and marketers of concrete saws, diamond blades and cutting tools. The company has more than 40 employees and is a member of numerous industry associations, including the American Concrete Pavement Association, International Grooving & Grinding Association, Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association, Associated Equipment Distributors, and the American Rental Association.
