Lou Divers

Entrepreneurial. Hands-on. Can-do.

That’s a good way to describe Lou Divers, who founded Precision Abrasives in 1987.

Lou got his start in the abrasives industry in 1982 when he joined Norton as a sales trainee. By the following year, he managed a large sales territory in northeastern Ohio and dealt in industrial abrasives for the primary metals market. In 1984, Lou left Norton for Gateway Industrial Supply where he managed their abrasives division. A few years later, he purchased that division, and it became Precision Abrasives.

When it comes to meeting customers’ needs, Lou emphasizes responsiveness. “In many cases, we supply grinding products to entire mills, not just individual departments, so we know that a supply interruption or an issue that makes a product unusable can slow down or stop production. We take that responsibility very seriously.”

It’s more than that too. If you ask Lou what's developed Precision's industry-wide reputation for quality and customer service for more than 25 years, he has a simple answer. "Our customers trust the team we’ve built."

Outside of work, Lou is an avid motorcyclist, and he’s a big fan of Harley Davidsons. He enjoys cookouts, boating, independent & alternative music, sports, hunting, and fishing. He’s also very active in the Christian Coalition Outreach (CCO).
