This company made industrial-sized sanding machines. They were active from the 1930s through to 1998, and possibly both before and after that time. They were a diversified company that likely made sanders for only a fraction of their years in business, including the 1950s.

After founder R. H. Bouligny's death in 1971, the company was reorgnized under a new umbrella company, the Rowe Corp. Oliver Reagan Rowe had been the president of R. H. Bouligny, Inc.; he became president and chairman of Rowe Corp. Rowe Corp. has since gone out of business.
