Home / Our Story

Welcome to Skat Blast, Inc.

Skat Blast, Inc. (originally located in Youngstown, Ohio) has been developing and manufacturing abrasive blast cabinets since the late 1970s. In 1982, Skat Blast moved to Canfield, Ohio, where we share the major portion of a beautiful 100,000 square foot brick facility located at the corner of US Route 224 and State Rt. 446. Our plant is located just one mile west of the center of Canfield, OH on a 30-acre parcel of land. In addition to manufacturing over 20 models of abrasive blast cabinets, Skat Blast also manufactures a very efficient paint spray system, the SHOWTIME HVLP (High Volume-Low Pressure) Turbine. The SHOWTIME HVLP Turbine Paint Spray Systems produce superior paint finishes while saving up to 50% on paint materials and reducing overspray up to 80%.

Skat Blast Warehouse - Huge Media Blasting Cabinet Inventory

Skat Blast Abrasive Blast Cabinets & Products are made in 6 separate shops, starting with sheets of genuine USA steel.

CNC plasma-cutting tables are used to cut the steel to various size and style cabinets. This steel is then built into cabinets on a daily basis. Every aspect of the manufacturing process is done here, including research and design work. We operate a complete machine shop, welding department, steel storage area, assembly areas, warehouse, paint booths and packaging departments. In addition, we stock just about every single part ever required for any Skat Blast Cabinet made during the past 35 years. When we say “Made in USA” we mean exactly that.
