Swift and Whitmore Limited was founded in 1968 and has since grown to be the UK’s largest independent manufacturer and supplier of abrasives to all industry sectors. Their customer base covers the entire industrial spectrum from small welding supplies companies to the largest steel manufacturers and foundry groups. Swift and Whitmore Limited can call on the leading global producers of abrasive products and technology.
