Welcome to Tufts Grinding, Inc.

Since our beginning, Tufts Grinding, Inc, has provided high quality, precision bar stock to its customers. We have continued to improve our production practices, systems and quality over time.  First, combining our centerless grinding process with Total Quality Management and then automating our process by adding laser control for product sizing and computerized Statistical Process Control (SPC).   In 2005, we adopted Lean manufacturing which allows us to control our cost in a very competitive steel market while at the same time, continuing to improve our quality.


About our company:
Tufts Grinding, Inc was started in 1983 by two brothers, Don and Art Tufts. The original building was a small shop that housed one small centerless grinder.  We moved to the current location in 1985.  In 1996 we doubled the size of the building and in October of 2007 we completed an expansion that re-doubled the size of the building.  We have increased our capabilities by adding turning and polishing, thereby giving us the capability of providing Turned and Polished and Turned, Ground and Polished products.  Today, we have gone from just Don and Art in a small shop selling to a few local companies to over 25 employees producing product which is sold to both OEM and Distributor customers, in North and South America as well as Europe.  Our markets range from agriculture to energy to construction equipment to manufactured parts that are used in autos, airplanes and water craft.

Tufts Philosophy:
We are dedicated to the production of quality products which meet or exceed our customers’ expectations and to profitably achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction.  Our desire is to continually improve the quality of both our process and service for our customers which will in return provide a high quality of life for our employees and at the same time return a reasonable profit to the corporation.

Our People:

Our people are our greatest asset.  We encourage our people to advance themselves through education.  To assist in that effort, we provide continuous training for every employee.
