In the 1950’s, Bomas helped shape the ceramics machining industry.
Today, we are the shape of things to come!
Bomas is credited with being pioneers in the use of Diamond Tooling; and innovators of Conformal Grinding and Machining. Today, our skills, processing decisions, and tooling methods continue to prove unequaled as we master the test of time.
