A long history ensures a bright future

Ekamant

Experience is the best innovator. With over 90 years in the business, Ekamant is one of the most experienced manufacturers of coated abrasives in the world. It's also one of the most innovative.

Ekamant is located in Markaryd, deep in the heart of a Swedish forest, where our company was founded in 1928. The coated abrasive knowledge we have accumulated over the years has been passed down from generation to generation. We are constantly discussing new ideas for improving our technology. At work, we are trying, testing, failing - and eventually succeeding. But the goal is always the same: how to find ways to make our products even better and more effective in supporting our customers' development.

Our combination of tradition and high-technology is unique and it has inspired us to think outside the box and use abrasives in an innovative way - for the benefit of both present and future generations.
