About Us

Here at Norton we've cared a lot about abrasives for more than 130 years. We care so that when you need the right sandpaper for your bathroom makeover or the right grinding wheel to streamline production in your plant, we're delivering choices that matter to your workforce, the environment, and your bottom line.


We're constantly looking for ways to improve your working conditions and simplify the job by eliminating dust or noise, reducing total costs by increasing the number of parts you can finish in an abrasive application, and considering the ergonomics of the application to improve worker comfort. 'Right' means different things to every customer. And, if we don't have the solution you're looking for today, you can count on us to be developing that solution for tomorrow.
