Imerys has completed the acquisition of the carbonate business of Vimal Microns, a key Indian producer of ground calcium carbonates. With almost 200 employees, this business generates a revenue of ca. 500 million of Indian Rupees (€7 million).
Following this deal, Imerys, which is a global player in Carbonates, strengthens its presence in India, in particular for growing market applications (polymers and coatings).
This business will be consolidated in the Carbonates division, which is part of the Energy Solutions & Specialties business group.
