We serve a four state region consisting of North Louisiana, South Arkansas, East Texas and Southeast Oklahoma. Primarily catering to the board mill industry, such as, manufacturers of plywood, particle board, oriented strand board (OSB) and medium density fiberboard (MDF). Southern Carbide has expanded its services and products to meet the needs of mill-work shops, cabinet makers, molding factories, door manufacturers and metal fabrication plants.
We feel that by focusing on sharpening, repair first we can better serve our customers, providing longer tool life and longer run times.
We’ve re-tipped and sharpened all sorts of cutting tools, including hoggers, cutter head bits, and tongue and groove sets. We realize that with so many of these cutting jobs, it is not simply a one and done operation, rather an ongoing process.
At Southern Carbide we have the equipment, people and knowledge to sharpen & repair a variety of cutting tools.
Southern Carbide is ready to monitor your production inventory by leveraging our years of experience.
We have been working with saw blades, cutters, industrial knives, and hogger heads for over 20+ years.
