The History of Coventry Grinders

The History of Coventry Grinders

The Midlands is well known as the heartland of engineering and automotive manufacturing sectors throughout the twentieth century. Coventry has always been a big part of these industries and has been the home to several pioneers in both the science and engineering sectors. Coventry Grinders was established many decades ago during the 1930s, with the aim of serving the highly demanding and ever-growing industries.

During the early days, Coventry Grinders was a large engineering company that had a unique skillset for that time. Coventry Grinders has always been innovative and offered apprenticeships and jobs for locals. The organisation was mainly focused purely on grinding and served Coventry and the Midlands as well as the rest of England.

Since then Coventry Grinders has changed ownership twice and is now run by its third owner. Coventry Grinders is proud that all our owners have been from the local area, and are committed to the growth of the region and the UK’s manufacturing industry as a whole.

During the last eight years, Coventry Grinders has increased its service offering and now supplies key steel and gauge plate as well as a wide range of abrasives. Now the business has an equal split between both product types and serves a nationwide customer base.

We are very proud of our heritage and believe we have significantly developed over the last 80 years to serve the requirements of the evolving engineering sector. Coventry Grinders still prioritise fulfilling commitment to their customers’ needs and will continue to do so. Looking to the future, Coventry Grinders wants to continue its run of success and develop the business further.
