The STARCKE organisation is a medium-sized, independent, fourth-generation family business, and one of the major abrasive suppliers in the market. Their business activities can be traced back to 1720.

Their corporate history begins with trade in iron and wood products as well as household commodities, which was eventually replaced by the manufacture of cleaning agents, detergents, and matches. Towards the end of the 19th century, the production range was extended by the addition of emery paper and sanding cloths. In the years to follow, these articles gained in significance as industrialisation progressed. Today, they are referred to in the industry as coated abrasives and are classified as high-quality tools.

For over 100 years their abrasive cloths and papers have added the finishing touches in a wide variety of applications, manufacturing quality products. A diversified product range is marketed world-wide through subsidiaries and various other distribution channels.

Quality is one of the company’s top priorities and subject to continuous review. This involves inspecting batches on a regular basis and documenting the results. In addition to being ISO 9001 certified, STARCKE also complies with individual customer-defined standards.

STARCKE abrasives easily deal with orange peel, runs and sags, trapped dirt or craters – every paint defect is taken care of. Each abrasive is tailor-made for the body shop stage and need.
