About Us

Bulldog Abrasives is committed to excellence and value in everything we do.

Who are we?

Bulldog Abrasives was established in 1995 to represent Mirka as the sole distributor for abrasives in Sub-Saharan Africa which it has done with great success over the last 25 years. Mirka is a global leading manufacturer and supplier of abrasives to automotive manufacturers and refinishing specialists, as well as marine, wood and furniture sectors, and the metal and composite industries. 

In 1997 Bulldog Abrasives was acquired by present management and over the years has continued to expand its product range with the aim of building a one-stop solution for its customers. To this end the focus has been to supply high quality competitively priced products that are supported by a team of skilled technical staff. The business initially focused on the automotive industry, DIY, woodworking and composite markets. By aligning the business with globally recognised suppliers, Bulldog has managed to set itself apart by supplying a comprehensive range of market leading and innovative products. 


Bulldog Abrasives Product Supply Strategy


The success of our business is attributed to the fact that our customers “EXPECT MORE” when dealing with Bulldog Abrasives. It’s a culture that commits us to consistently strive to deliver excellence.


In 2005, Bulldog Abrasives Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd took a giant leap with regard to our company’s growth and purchased our conversion plant. This conversion plant enables us to convert jumbo rolls into sheets, narrow belts, wide belts, and discs – just to mention a few.

We supply a comprehensive range of:

Zirconia on paper, plus a variety of cloth backings
Silicon carbide with and without stearate on cloth and paper
Aluminium Oxide Cloth, Polyester and paper for all applications

We also have the ability to convert all of the above materials into a complete product that is best suited to our customers’ needs.


We supply over 14 countries within Sub-Saharan Africa – including Mauritius and Madagascar – with products, training, and skills that ensure distributors have all the tools and necessary abilities to distribute confidently within their chosen fields of expertise.


With over 22 light delivery vehicles, Bulldog Abrasives is able to deliver anywhere within a 60 kilometre radius of Johannesburg Central, and twice daily. Through the services of our partner, DCB Logistics, we deliver daily to all major centres, including Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, and Durban.
