Company Profile

Blademaster™ is the global leader in skate care equipment and supplies. Blademaster skate sharpening machines are sold worldwide, and can be found in over 50 countries. We are proud to be the official and exclusive supplier to eight of the top national hockey federations, including Hockey Canada and Team USA. Blademaster machines are also endorsed by the Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers (SPHEM).

Blademaster is a division of Guspro Inc., a family owned and operated business located in Chatham, ON, Canada. Guspro entered the skate sharpening business in 1987 with the acquisition of TSM/Custom Radius, and shortly thereafter renamed the division to Blademaster.

Guspro Inc. was established in 1932 as the Canadian division of Sunnen Products Company, headquarted in St. Louis, MO.  For over 50 years, Guspro distributed and manufactured Sunnen honing products, including machines, abrasives, and tooling.  In 1980, Canadian manufacturing for Sunnen Products was set to wind down, and so Guspro Inc. began a transformation.  Though Guspro remains the exclusive distributor of Sunnen Products in Canada, today the company is comprised of four unique but complementary divisions.
