The head office of Saint-Gobain Abrasives UK and home to approximately 93 employees.  From customer services, finance and marketing to  warehouse operations, it’s here where the day to day running of the UK operation is managed.  Thanks to a specific warehouse that holds UK stock and a round the clock delivery service, Stafford is proud to offer a 24 hour delivery to UK customers.



This arm of the business was acquired through the purchase of Van Moppes Ltd in 1997, where in 2002 Saint-Gobain Abrasives moved to the modern facility at Staverton.  This facility has enabled us to fully achieve our aim of offering premium quality diamond Super Abrasives at cost-effective prices, matched by the very best customer service. Home to approximately 30 employees Staverton is the heart of the company's diamond operations.

Raleigh Hall

Located not far from the Stafford site, Raleigh Hall has been the home of grinding wheel production in the UK since 2012. The manufacture of grinding wheels began in Stafford 100 years ago. Since then change, innovation, investment and new technology has led to moving production to Raleigh Hall, with investment of £1.15 million in the specially selected site in Eccleshall, Staffordshire. The move was made to focus on continued improvement through specialised manufacturing excellence and lead-time reduction, with the aim to provide the best possible service to support the UK aerospace market. The plant produces high precision, technical innovations under the Norton brand, for high performance grinding of aerospace turbines.
