Pacer Industries Inc. was founded in 1980 by Joseph F. Moran in Malvern, Pennsylvania. Starting out with only a 2,000 sq. ft. building and few machines, Pacer began its early days making cork wheels for finishing and polishing steel bars on centerless grinders. As time passed, Pacer began expanding it’s product line of centerless and roll wheels. In 1990 Pacer moved it’s facility to a 25 acre property once owned by one of Chester County’s earliest mushroom farmers in Coatesville, PA.
Over the years, new wheels were developed including a patented epoxy based resin-bond wheel. The combination wheel set was added which allows an operator to both rough and finish in one pass, thus saving them much valuable time and money. New versions of resin wheels were formulated to grind titanium and other difficult metals for much easier removal requiring little to no redressing.
In 2010 Pacer acquired the DPR product line from Royal Elastomers. A natural compound, Depolymerized Rubber is sourced from rubber trees that is converted by Pacer from a solid to a liquid form. As the world’s sole producer of natural liquid rubber, Pacer not only supplies the binder for it’s own wheels but sells to other grinding wheel manufacturers, tire makers and other specialized industries.
In 2012 Pacer suffered a large fire destroying all but a single building. However limited, operations continued while rebuilding took place. When completed, Pacer’s new facility increased overall size to about 50,000 sq. ft. It includes multiple specialized manufacturing areas. The state-of-art CNC Vertical Turning Center, wheel balancer and speed tester provides greater precision and quality control.
