Alteo Increases its Grinding Capacity for Super-Ground Products by 50 %
In a very dynamic market since beginning of 2021, resulting in strong demand for very fine alumina, Alteo/FR announced the increase in its very fine grinding capacities in Busan (Korea) and Gardanne (France). With grinding capacities multiplied by 3 in Korea by the end of 2021 and increased by 50 % in France in the first quarter of 2022, Alteo will therefore have tripled its global very fine grinding capacities since 2016. These investments illustrate the strong will of Alteo to strengthen the development of specialty aluminas and to support its customers in refractory and technical ceramics applications but also in very strong growth markets such as lithium-ion batteries and thermal management.
“After setting up production workshops and an application laboratory in Asia, the increase in our capacities in France and Korea confirms our desire to always be as close as possible to the needs of our customers”, said Xavier Bapst, Commercial Director.
