We have a long tradition as a supplier of foundry-grade bentonite, originally using our world renowned reserves on the island of Milos. With the acquisition of IKO-Erbsloeh, we moved closer to foundry customers in Europe, supplying them with bentonite, coal and application technology. The group expanded into the Americas by incorporating the expertise, technology and assets of the Hill & Griffith and BPM foundry businesses.
Today the Imerys group offers foundry solutions worldwide out of its bases in Europe and America as well as through newly established joint ventures in Asia. Within the group, Imerys Metalcasting Solutions as a brand symbolizes the know-how, customized services and quality offered to this important market segment.
