In the late 60s, the company came to be associated with Norton Company , USA through a technological and financial collaboration, after which they were renamed Grindwell Norton Limited . In 1990, Compagnie de Saint Gobain, a French multinational, acquired Norton Company, USA and in 1996 Grindwell Norton Ltd. became a majority owned subsidiary. In 1972, GNL backward integrated into the production of Silicon Carbide (SiC) one of the major raw materials for bonded and coated abrasives and refractories .
