Innovating For The Customers

GMA Garnet (GMA) has spent over 30 years establishing itself as the global leader in the garnet abrasive market. GMA not only mines, processes and distributes garnet for the surface preparation and waterjet cutting industries, but also leads the way in garnet recycling. GMA is the only garnet abrasive producer to own and manage its entire supply chain from start to finish. At the helm of this unique organisation is Group CEO Stephen Gobby, who shares with MFN the company's outlook and customer-focused initiatives for the future.
