Cape Diamond was incorporated in 1988 in the USA as a sales and application company for the manufacturing division of Cape Diamond LTD. in England. In 1991, the owners of Cape Diamond USA formed Cape Abrasives. Cape Abrasives began manufacturing and replating super abrasive grinding wheels in house. The owners of Cape Abrasives developed a cutting tool line and formed Hauser Engineering in 1997 to manufacture the new line. Hauser Engineering started with one 4-axes CNC grinder made in-house as its primary grinding machine to manufacture and resharpen cutting tools. The company has since built or rebuilt thirteen grinders for the cutting tool industry.
On July 1, 2004, Cape Abrasives and Hauser Engineering merged and began operating under the name, Hauser, Inc. The merger and name change were made to better reflect the diverse product line that is manufactured today. Hauser, Inc. has documented cost saving programs at large automotive plants. These results come from excellent grinding equipment, outstanding people, and sound engineering principals.
