SAIT ABRASIVES (UK) LTD
Established in 1963, is the UK Branch of SAIT Group. It is recognised as a quality abrasive manufacturer supplying products to industrial professionals for all applications relating to the processing of metal, wood, stone and building materials, together with a complete range of products suitable for body shop and car accident repair. Together with such an extensive range on offer, there is a strong structure of territory managers that work with companies ensuring, by using the right product for the process, that the requirements and goals are achieved and, most importantly, in a cost effective safe way. With more and more clients insisting on using SAIT products, in 2013 manufacturing facilities and warehousing were relocated to larger premises in Leicester, just off Junction 21 of the M1. The site covers 22800 sqt: continual ongoing investment will see 2 new production machines being installed in early 2019, bucking the trend of many manufacturing companies sourcing products from overseas.
