The KutRite story begins with brothers Ralph and Omero Neri, the sons of Italian immigrants that came to America to work in the copper mines of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. As many children who grew up in the 1930s Depression Era, they sought a better life, Ralph as a mechanic and tool maker and Omero as an engineer. And their aspirations led them to the bustling manufacturing center of Detroit.
In the 1940s, Detroit grew into a major manufacturing center, spurred by automobile and wartime engineering and production. It was in the post war business climate that the brothers formed KutRite Manufacturing Company, in 1947. KutRite began as a manufacturer of Huntington Grinding Wheel Dressers, a hand tool for dressing grinding wheels. From its beginning, KutRite established an ethic for quality by opting for a more labor intensive milling process to manufacture their dresser cutters, which yielded a substantially higher tool quality.
