Our Company


Over a century of specialty cement development

Founded by C. Fred Sauereisen in 1899, Fred was a mostly self-taught ceramist who worked with George Westinghouse on the first porcelain insulator. Fred's interest in ceramics launched the Sauereisen Cement Company and by applying his knowledge, he developed a signature product – Insa-Lute Adhesive Cement No. 1 – that served as the core of an entire product line.

This was only the beginning of what rapidly grew to be an internationally known manufacturer and distributor of engineered products.

Today, more than a century later, Sauereisen continues to be a family-run company which continues the tradition of new and innovative ideas while maintaining the strength of strong core values that C. Fred Sauereisen introduced so long ago.
