Industries We Serve

Most well-known in the glass industry, we focus on the fabrication of industrial flat glass and tempered glass for residential and commercial architectural construction, including interior applications such as shower doors and appliances. We offer a full line of glass fabrication tooling, supplies and machinery—as well as flat glass handling equipment, service and support—to fabricators across North America and abroad.

Our stone industry tooling solutions help fabricators provide stone countertops, vanities, retail kiosks, tabletops and flooring in the home furnishing and commercial space. For the vision industry, we provide surfacing and finishing supplies from lens tape and polishing compounds to anti-slip film, lens tints and dyes. We also carry CNC lens drills, CNC Optidrills and engravers. 

Salem offers products and supplies for specialized applications in other industries that require precision surfacing. These industries and applications include: military, aviation, laser rod finishing, telescope lens production, electronics and ceramics.

Whether you’re working with industry standard flat glass or a specialized process, Salem is here to help you accomplish your goals so you can GO BEYOND THE EDGE.




Since 1934, Salem has serviced the glass industry and has a wealth of experience to bring to fabrication processes. While we can provide glass fabrication equipment and supplies to the artistic side of the industry, flat glass processing for home and office construction is the largest portion of our business. Our reputation for innovation and top-of-the-line tooling and machinery precedes us. Whether you focus on annealed, strengthened, tempered or laminated flat glass, Salem has all the flat glass equipment and supplies you’ll need for your manufacturing processes.


Salem’s understanding of new construction as well as the annual growth in the home improvement market, led us to enter the stone industry in 2001. Whether commercial or residential, kiosks or countertops, our innovative quality stone tools and supplies aid fabricators in providing unique products to their customers. With our wide selection of stone lifting equipment, grinding supplies and polishing wheels, and our knowledgeable product specialists, Salem has the expertise you can trust. 




In 1972, Salem entered into the ophthalmic industry and continues to provide industry leading finishing and surfacing supplies to lens manufacturers today. We provide only the highest quality products with the expertise to perfect the processes. From lens protection and polishing to tinting, Salem provides everything for a lens fabrication processing lab. Our product specialists are constantly looking for a void in any lab methodology to help streamline the processing of ophthalmic materials.


Various industries require specialized glass manufacturing processes that step outside of traditional fabrication methods. Aviation, military and civilian vehicles, telescope lenses, lasers, solar panels, ceramics and exotic metals have specific demands and specifications that need to be met. Our advanced surfacing tooling and supplies are developed with those specific uses and industries in mind. With in house process experts, we are able to help trouble shoot processes to optimize the manufacturing of a wide array of materials.
