Engis Corporation is a third-generation privately-owned US-based manufacturer of high-performance superabrasive lapping, grinding, honing, and polishing products and related machinery and accessories.
The company began in 1938, with offices in the US and UK, as a trading company for precision measuring equipment and industrial machinery. The company entered into the abrasives market in the 1940s with the development of its Hyprez Diamond Compounds for precise polishing of critical components for defense and aviation industries. Since that time, Engis expanded its range of superabrasive products, applications, and industries served to be recognized as World Leader in Superabrasive Finishing Systems.
The company’s 131,000 square foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in Wheeling, Illinois, is located 15 miles north of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. To provide sales, technical, and logistical support for multinational and foreign customers, Engis has established subsidiary companies located in Canada, the UK, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and China, supplemented by a worldwide network of Agents and Distributors. The State of Illinois has recognized Engis as “Exporter of the Year.”
