Fine Grinding was founded in 1940 as a small privately owned business, at it's current
site, as an associated company to William Smith (Fluorspar) Ltd.
During the company's first decade of business it's principal occupation was the crushing,
drying and grading of a locally dug mineral, Fluorspar.
Gradually more processing equipment was commissioned at the site and as a general
reduction of Fluorspar usage was experienced (due mainly to changes in steel making
techniques) it became necessary for the company to broaden the scope of materials
it was handling.
The company diversified into the processing of other minerals and ores and more specialist
processing equipment was installed. The processing equipment operated at our site
is designed to be flexible and adaptable enabling the company to respond positively
to many specialist assignments
Fine Grinding are proud to remain privately owned. An array of different materials
are now handled, the company has steadily grown and is now a major processor and
supplier of industrial minerals, aggregates and ores. Turnover has increased significantly
in recent years in line with the companies expansion into new markets and materials
