Imerys has completed the acquisition of Micron-Ita, a key Brazilian producer in micronized ground calcium carbonates for polymer pplications. This company generates a revenue of ca. BRL 60 million (€16 million).
Following this deal, Imerys, which is a global leader of Carbonates, strengthens its presence in Brazil by opening up its portfolio to new dynamic market applications (PVC compounds, roofing linings and profiles, pipes and fittings).
This business will be consolidated in the Carbonates division, which is part of the Energy Solutions & Specialties business group.
