Who We Are

Impact Fluids is a merger of several companies to bring their collective knowledge and expertise together as one entity for better service to our customers. Prior to the founding of Impact Fluids, we were a combination of three companies: Great Lakes Industrial Service (GLIS), Curtis Fluids (CF) and Advanced Metalworking Solutions (AMS). Each of these companies worked independently and provided different fluids or equipment to the metalworking industry.
