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.
TURIN-COLLEGNO, HEADQUARTERS AND FACILITY FOR THE PRODUCTION OF BONDED ABRASIVES
The Turin-Collegno facility now covers 27,000 m². It was built in 1958 and expanded several times until 2010, when a new building of over 6,000 m² was built to accommodate new automatic production systems. This is where the resin bonded elastic wheels for cutting and deburring are produced, with diameters from 75 to 600 mm.
CUNEO-PIOZZO, COATED ABRASIVE PRODUCTION UNIT
Coated abrasives (paper, cloth and fibre backed) are produced in Cuneo-Piozzo. The facility was built in 1975 and expanded in the years until 2012 to house the new continuous production lines of coated abrasives. The site now covers an area of over 25,000 m².
SETTIMO TORINESE, WAREHOUSE AND DISTRIBUTION CENTRE
The central warehouse was built in 1981 and subsequently expanded to follow the evolution of the company. Today it is an efficient logistics centre of 8,500 m² equipped with the most modern systems for the storage and delivery of SAIT products all over the world. The immediate availability of a large number of articles and the advanced logistic management make the SAIT service a point of reference in the market of abrasive products.
