Around sixty-five years ago, Manfred Rhodius set off in the VW bus that he'd converted into a mobile workshop to try out his newly-developed cutting discs in local factories and plants. He brought with him the first innovative cutting and grinding discs made by RHODIUS.

The experience and knowledge gained from practice was quickly transferred into the development of new RHODIUS abrasive tools. For example, as early as the end of the 1950s, production was switched from paper as a backing material to glass fibre fabric – as is still the case today with resin-bonded cutting and grinding discs.

This customer focus and the constant innovation have not changed at RHODIUS Abrasives to this day. 

If there is one thing we know exactly, it is how to cut and grind metal with maximum precision and economy on a large scale. 

Thanks to our more than 70 years of sales experience based on partnership, we know and understand the problems and challenges in the everyday work of the professional user. A sound understanding of the products and applications is the key to a perfect work result.

This is how premium tools made in Germany are created at RHODIUS with our unique manufacturing technologies, which are unparalleled in terms of quality.
