About Us

Our mission is to provide our customers with the highest quality products at the best price value, along with unsurpassed customer service. Our sales team will provide you with the technical support and engineered solutions you need, for your product application.

Sparky Abrasives was founded in 1967. Leaders Manufacturing acquired Sparky Abrasives in March of 2007. At that time, all manufacturing and warehouse functions were moved from Minneapolis, MN to Willmar, MN. In October of 2008, the sales functions were also relocated to Willmar, so all operations could be conducted under one roof.

Leaders Manufacturing is a convertor and manufacturer of a wide range of abrasive products. Leaders plans to continue manufacturing and expanding the Sparky brand of abrasives and is committed to increasing value to our customers by providing new and improved products. We are proud to offer high quality products at the best price value available.
