Building A Bright Future Together With Customers... Through Innovation

Winoa, until recently known as Wheelabrator Allevard, is one of the world’s leading groups and specializes in two major activities: steel abrasives and diamond tools. Steel abrasives are used in the metal industry for cleaning metal parts, preparing surfaces before coating and enhancing fatigue resistance, and also in the stone industry to cut granite blocks into thin slabs. Diamond tools are used in the stone cutting and processing industry. Since 1961 Winoa has been a market-leading innovator in both these areas. Headquartered in Le Cheylas, France, Winoa employs a diverse and highly skilled global workforce consisting of 1500 employees in 30 countries on five continents. Group sales in 2011 totaled €420m. MFN was able to interview Stéphane Guillon, Vice President of Marketing & Innovation of the company.
