A Brand of Saint-Gobain


Create great living places and improve daily life

When Norton Company was acquired by Saint-Gobain in 1990, we became part of a corporate entity with more than 350 years of materials history. Today, Saint-Gobain, and its well-known brands, can be found everywhere in our living places and our daily lives: in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and many industrial applications through the design, manufacturing, and distribution of materials and solutions that are key to the wellbeing of each of us and the future of all. Saint-Gobain is strongly focused on comfort, performance and safety with the utmost priority to sustainable construction, resource efficiency and climate change. Saint-Gobain is not only one of the top 100 leading industrial corporations, but it is also ranked amongst the top 100 global innovators by Thomson Reuters’. It’s these impressive credentials and access to this vast global network of product and technical expertise that has fostered Norton brand’s continual progression over the last 130 years to deliver technologies and application solutions that further reshape your world.

How Norton Fits In?

In 2001, Norton Company changed our legal entity name to Saint-Gobain Abrasives. Saint-Gobain Abrasives is one of four High-Performance Materials businesses within the Innovative Materials sector of Saint-Gobain. Globally, Saint-Gobain Abrasives consists of 61 manufacturing facilities across 27 countries with over 10,600 employees.

We retained the Norton name as our premiere brand in the marketplace and continue to develop solutions for everything from wheels to polish the grains of rice that appear on your dinner table to sanding discs to finish wind turbine blades that offer a future choice in energy efficiency.
