Almatis Enjoys Growth (3/20/07)

March 20, 2007

Since its inception three years ago, Almatis has recorded over 20% growth in sales volume. Much of this growth is attributed to an increased consumption of higher-quality, alumina-based refractories driven by continuously growing steel production volumes and the transition to higher-quality steel. High-performance aluminas in advanced ceramics are another major growth contributor.

“The Almatis focus on the production of high-quality synthetic aluminas and on supplying value to our customers is a story of tremendous growth,” said Martin Laudenbach, chief executive officer. “Although there is a wide range of raw materials available on the market today, choosing the right combination and quality of components gives our customers clear performance improvement.”
