Since the company was founded in 1968, Deburex has been able to develop the best practices in the precision machined parts finishing and deburring industry, and has become the largest company specializing in that field in North America.

The integration of continuous improvement methods such as Kaizen and PVA has allowed Deburex to develop its own work processes, which are based on precision and performance. We go into each project secure in the knowledge that our highly skilled master finishers, true experts in the field, are equipped with the best tools available and a work plan designed to maximize output.

Deburex works with manufacturing subcontractors from major industries (aeronautics, oil and natural gas, injection moulding, etc.) to increase profitability and deliver maximum value to its customers.

At Deburex, the constant pursuit of perfection is deeply engrained in our corporate culture.



To continue to be the most efficient precision machined parts finishing and subcontracted deburring services centre in North America.
