In business since 1848, Covington Engineering has decades and generations of experience. Originally a manufacturer of hand and foot grinders for sharpening farm tools and shaping seashells and coral, Covington Engineering has evolved into a leading manufacturer of lapidary equipment.   

Covington’s ability to adapt and modernize their equipment makes them a leader in the industry. They continue to look for newer and better ways to improve their product. Covington Engineering is proud to be an American manufacturer, and are proud to support American industry and economy. Additionally, using local suppliers helps them to maintain their cost of goods, thereby stabilizing prices.

All Covington Engineering equipment is assembled by specially trained technicians. These technicians ensure that each piece of machinery works properly and holds tight tolerances. It is not unusual for a customer to bring in a piece of equipment that is decades old and simply need a small repair or refurbishment. It is this idea that a product should last generations that gives our product a competitive edge. You can buy a Covington unit and know that it will last for years to come.

All Covington tools undergo rigorous testing in our factory. Although they do their utmost to prevent a defective item from leaving the facility, occasionally a defective part will not show problematic symptoms in house. This is why Covington Engineering provides a full one year warranty against defective parts. 

It is Covington’s philosophy that equipment should last a life time. Although this may mean they are slowly working themselves out of a job, they truly believe that anything less than their absolute best is no way to do business. You can believe in Covington equipment and their customer service department always gives 100% effort!
