The GMA Garnet Group (GMA) is an integrated garnet mining, processing, shipping, global marketing and distribution organisation providing the highest quality industrial garnet for the surface preparation and waterjet cutting industries. The group has pioneered the operation of large-scale garnet recycling facilities in Italy, Saudi Arabia, UAE and USA offering an environmentally friendly solution to the disposal of used garnet.
Since the late 1980s, GMA has transformed a previously unknown garnet mineral resource with little local or international demand, into a profitable mining, processing and distribution business with 40 per cent global market share in the garnet abrasive market. Today, GMA Garnet Group is the global market leader for high-performance blasting and waterjet cutting abrasive and for other niche applications. It has over 7,000 end-users and a wholly-owned global distribution network.
