If we don't carry it, we can make it.


Unfortunately, we can't show them all to you, but if you don't see the pad you're looking for on this site or want something made especially for you JUST ASK. Chances are that we already make it. It is requests like these that have enabled Ferro Industries, Inc. to become the largest manufacturer of custom-made sanding pads in the world.

Over 50 years of experience


In 1985, a customer asked us to make a custom pad to fit into their new lambswool polishing pad. Our first attempt came close, but still missed the mark. The customer then sent us a sample of their polishing pad and we could see where the changes needed to be made. Since our pad sat too high, we reverse cut the outer edges of the foam and the pad fit perfectly. Thirty-five years later, the same design is still used today.
