Welcome to Blackstone Industries, LLC.

Established in 1976 by Willard Nelson, Blackstone Industries, Inc. grew a family of brands on the promise of providing quality tools and service to a broad and diverse customer base. Like many successful companies, Blackstone thrived on the strength of its team and their dedication to customer loyalty.

Blackstone Industries, LLC purchased the assets of Blackstone Industries, Inc in October 2013. Under new ownership, that same cohesive and passionate team continues to provide leadership and support to all its valued customers with a relentless pursuit of improvement centered on quality. With a solid established foundation to build upon, we are excited for the growth underway and challenges that lay ahead. To improve our customer interface and manufacturing processes we’ve launched a new enterprise and resource planning software system. We have begun the redesign of our brand websites to improve customer access to product information. In addition, we opened a new east coast showroom for our Edge Finisher brand so customers can come and demo equipment in person. These, along with new products, are just some of the exciting things happening at Blackstone.
