John Ervin's pioneering efforts in blast cleaning led to new process techniques, technologies and applications, shaping the metal abrasives industry we see today. Ervin remains a family owned company, committed to the same values that drove our founder.

Ervin has an established reputation for quality leadership and doing things the best possible way. The company now has 6 manufacturing plants across two continents, including the only cast steel abrasive manufacturing facility in the UK and supplies customers across the globe.

The whole Ervin team are understandably proud to have reached this significant milestone, and intend to celebrate with their suppliers, customers and staff throughout the year.
