Almatis Constructing a New Tabular Plant in Falta
As demand for tabular alumina expands with India’s refractory requirements, Almatis is committed to support and enhance its customers’ success with quality alumina products and excellent service.
A positive outlook for Indian produced steel, leveraged by growing GDP and per capita steel consumption requires premium alumina for longer refractory life. “Almatis is committed to providing continuous support to the Indian refractory industry,” said Emre Timurkan, CEO Almatis. He assured the market that, “Almatis is on a path of rapid construction to satisfy our customers’ increasing demand for high quality tabular alumina.”
Operating since 1995, Almatis’ India business is based in Falta with a processing plant that has been growing steadily. Now with this forthcoming, world-class facility, Almatis will expand with integrated manufacturing line in India with tabular alumina converters installed. This investment will enable shorter lead times and a further improvement of flexibility from a plant in the proximity of our Indian and Asian customers.
Almatis India General Manager, Sarit Kundu, who’s responsible for execution of this strategic project, affirmed Almatis’ commitment: “Quality and delivery are of prime importance to Almatis. This upcoming Falta India tabular alumina production facility would meet the needs of our valued Indian customers and provide supply security for this growing market”.
