History - Corporate

Dynabrade History Image

Dynabrade Corporate began in 1969 with one inspired idea. Walter Welsch, Dynabrade's founder, developed the first Dynafile® Abrasive Belt Tool as a method of improving the task of hand-filing metals and other hard surfaces, while making this process quicker and easier than ever before. Thanks to this innovative, entrepreneurial spirit, Dynabrade thrives to this day, continuously upgrading the product offered, through extensive research & development based on market needs and new technological advancements in the tool and abrasive industries. Today, through the continued hard work and determination of its employees, Dynabrade has earned a worldwide reputation for excellence, holding a leadership position in the innovative design and manufacturing of unique portable power tools and related accessories.

Walter Welsch Bio

Made In USA

Dynabrade Made USA Image

Dynabrade tools have been proudly designed, manufactured and built in the USA for over 50 years. One of the ways we celebrated our Made in the USA pride was, by offering a limited edition Dynafile®. Our model 14000USA Dynafile® was draped in the Stars & Stripes of the American flag. The USA Dynafile® was the same fully functioning abrasive belt tool that can reliably track an 1/8" (3 mm) wide belt and offers the most contact arm options to tackle any industrial grinding, blending and polishing application using 24" (610 mm) long belts.
