Starcke GmbH & Co. KG is a medium sized family run independent
company in its 4th generation. Its origin dates back to before 1720, the name Starcke having been closely associated with
the company since 1829.
Our company history commenced with the trade
of metal and household commodities, these being substituted by the manufacture of detergents, cleansing materials,
and matches. By the end of the 19th century the production of the so called "emery and linen" was initiated. In the following
years industrialisation progressed, consequently these items grew in significance. Nowadays these products are widely referred
to as coated abrasives, they belong to the family of high quality tools.
For over 100 years our abrasive cloth and paper has given the master touch to a
wide variety of surfaces, converting them into quality products. A diverse production programme is marketed through subsidiaries
and independent sales channels worldwide.
Now our products are available to the North American market through Starcke
Abrasives USA, Inc.
