Oglebay Norton Unifies Limestone and Lime Operations

May 9, 2005
Oglebay Norton Co. has completed the process of unifying its limestone and lime operations under the name O-N Minerals. The new name applies to all the company's former Michigan Limestone Operations and Global Stone locations. The change will not affect the company's segment reporting of financial results. "We believe this move to a single name for limestone and lime operations will help increase market awareness of our broader capabilities," said Michael D. Lundin, president and chief executive officer. "We want customers to look beyond individual locations to see a network of strategically located, high-quality, long-life limestone reserves supported by processing facilities, docks and terminals, and a pooled fleet of 23 Great Lakes bulk carriers."
