HISTORY

           purpose of producing cold bonded quality abrasives near
           Zürich, Switzerland mainly for grinding and polishing
           applications on stone and cast iron.

           From the very first days of operation, Natale Ferronato
           continuously questioned existing methods and relentlessly
           pursued new and innovative processes and products.
