GMA Americas has been providing GMA Garnet industrial abrasives for the waterjet cutting and protective coatings industries for over 14 years.
Since 2005, GMA has been delivering high performance garnet from our office in Houston, Texas and via our advanced garnet processing and distribution plants in Oregon, Louisiana and Pennsylvania.
As the preferred supplier of abrasive garnet for the region’s Aerospace, Oil & Gas and Ship Maintenance industries, our focus is on providing customers with a complete range of safe, efficient products, formulated to achieve specific results.
GMA’s engineered range launched in 2017 expanded our industry leading products, creating new applications for the market and fulfilling our customers’ demands for project specific abrasives.
We have invested significantly throughout the region, particularly in our mine in Alder, Montana, developing it into the largest operating hard rock garnet mine operating in the world. Known for our innovation, we have also taken a leading approach to garnet recycling with two garnet recovery facilities in the USA.
Supported by city councils, our garnet recovery programs provide customers with a cost-effective and responsible option for managing used garnet that would otherwise be considered industrial waste.
To further help our clients achieve the best possible work practices and product efficiencies, we operate a Customer Training Center to guide participants through the basics of blasting and onward to the management of specialized applications.
The training facility features a blasting lab outfitted with the latest demonstration equipment, and doubles as our product development and improvement center.
Our team of experts based throughout the USA stands ready to provide support and advice, from selecting the right product to suit your requirements and cost-effective logistics arrangements to developing solutions for the technical challenges in your projects.
