At Shannon Abrasives, we understand the significance of maintaining a global reach while also preserving a local presence. Our roots are deeply entrenched in Shannon, Co.

This strategic location grants us easy access to global markets and empowers us to serve our clients with unparalleled efficiency and expertise.

Addressing Global Supply Chain Challenges:

Recent discussions surrounding potential disruptions in the global supply chain for superabrasives, including industrial diamonds, emphasize the critical importance of having dependable and diversified supply sources for essential materials. As China considers enacting export restrictions on Superabrasive products to the US (source: Yahoo News), the spotlight shines on the necessity for reliable partners capable of ensuring stability and security in the supply of superabrasives to the global market.


Nazak Nikakhtar, former US assistant secretary for industry and analysis at the Department of Commerce, recently told Newsweek that the U.S.’ over-reliance on China for superabrasives is concerning and Beijing could further restrict its access. Speaking on the matter, Nikakhtar commented that “China has already been deliberately limiting the United States’ access over the course of the past two years. Prices of superabrasive materials have approximately doubled due to China’s export restrictions to date. And there are rumours in China of the Chinese government directing companies to cut off our access even further.”.


These types of challenges underscore the need for proactive measures to mitigate risks and safeguard against disruptions, highlighting the value of long-term partnerships with suppliers like Shannon Abrasives who prioritize reliability, flexibility, and resilience in the face of evolving market dynamics.
