Clemco Industries: The World’s Largest Manufacturer of Air-Powered Abrasive Blasting Equipment
Clemco Industries is known throughout the United States and the world as the leading manufacturer of air-powered abrasive blast equipment used to clean, deburr, shot peen, remove coatings from, finish, or otherwise improve surfaces being blasted. Since the 1940s, Clemco has built industrial-grade blast equipment for contractors, facility owners, metal fabricators, and manufacturers around the globe.
The first blast machine Clemco manufactured had a 1.5-cuft pressure vessel, and from this initial machine Clemco’s business has expanded into four product lines: Clemco portable pressure blast equipment, ZERO blast cabinets, Aerolyte Systems nonaggressive-media equipment, and Clemco’s Industrial Blast Facilities.
