Salem Expertise

For over 70 years, we have successfully served four distinct industries: Glass, Stone, Precision Electro-Optical and Ophthalmic. All these industries produce a specified surface condition. From brilliant beveled mirrors to nanometer polished electronic materials to exceptional surface quality on the most advanced digital ophthalmic lenses, we are capable of supplying the materials and technical expertise for any of your demands. This complex relationship of industries, materials and variation of themes has served to build a vast wealth of product and process knowledge unique to a single company.

Salem Stone

In 2001, we once again distilled all of our fields of expertise and began serving a new industry – stone. Salem Stone introduced the Bovone line of stone edging equipment along with an extensive offering of cost-effective, high-quality stone working supplies.

In late 2004, SALEM Stone acquired the Bergman-Blair Machinery Corporation. Bergman-Blair represented a complete line of stone fabricating equipment that was second to none. Today our line of equipment still remains an elite group with a worldwide proven track record of performance and value. No other line of equipment can offer you better performance or greater peace of mind for your investment.

Our Commitment

We continue to set the standard by meeting the stone industry's demand for cost-effective, high-quality, innovative machinery and supplies. But it's not only about offering the best machinery and supplies, the Salem name also brings with it knowledge, service and value. Your success is our success and we deliver that every day.

SALEM Stone is also a member of Stone Fabricator's Alliance (SFA), an organization comprised of fabrication and restoration professionals from around the world.
