About

Saint-Gobain NorPro

Saint-Gobain NorPro serves the oil and gas production, refining, petrochemical/chemical, and environmental industries with highly-advanced ceramic based products for fixed bed reactor processing, heat and mass transfer applications, as well as drilling and exploration.

Saint-Gobain NorPro has developed into a major international supplier with a distinguished 100+-year history, starting from its humble beginnings as a backyard pottery producer in Akron, Ohio in 1859. The company’s evolution started with U.S. Stoneware, then Norton Chemical Process Products (Norton Company), and now as Saint-Gobain NorPro (Saint-Gobain).

The company provides technology-driven ceramic solutions – material science knowledge, forming capabilities, and the ability to tailor materials to specific requirements.
