Welcome to Hermes USA

Since its founding in 1970, the Hermes USA story has been one of continuous investment in and commitment to, a growing marketplace and customer base. As part of the group of affiliates with activities in North America, Europe, and Asia, Hermes is one of the world's leading suppliers of coated and bonded abrasives.

Officially incorporated in 1970

Originally marketed in North America as far back as 1957, Hermes Abrasives was officially incorporated in October 1970, in Long Island, New York. As significant sales participation levels were achieved, and to further respond to the growing industrial requirements in the United States marketplace, Hermes moved and expanded operations to its present site in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in 1981.

Cooperative partnership between Hermes Employees, Distributors and Customers

Domestically, our success hinges on a technically advanced product line sold into all areas of production requirements including metalworking, woodworking, glass, plastics, particleboard and plywood, and related industrial markets. In addition to developing and supplying the demand for Hermes products in the US, the Virginia facility supports North American activities through exports to Canada and Mexico. A commitment to continuous improvement in products, operations, and services is apparent in the cooperative partnership which exists between Hermes Employees, Distributors and Customers.

Hermes' manufacturing meets highest quality standards

To further demonstrate our intense desire to be an industry leader, our Manufacturing and Production Operations meet the highest quality standards of ISO 9001. This standard, in place throughout the Hermes Group, provides customers with the confirmation that they have chosen the right abrasive supplier and assurance that our continued dedication to quality will benefit them in future months and years.

We are very appreciative of the customers who have provided us with the opportunity and privilege to serve them over the years. We invite you to now explore how our complete line of coated and bonded abrasive products and programs may prove competitive for the ever changing Industrial Marketplace's requirements.
