Since December 2016, Alteo has had a grinding plant in Taiwan and from this month, Alteo triples its capacity following the installation of new grinders. Further expansion is expected within 1 year, to follow continued market growth.
The raw material for these grinders is a very low soda alumina produced by the alumina plant in Gardanne (France). Taiwan's production facility specializes in a range of super-ground products for high-growth markets: structural ceramics and battery membranes.
An analytical laboratory has also been installed to ensure the quality of these high-value products.
With this investment, Alteo increases further its presence in the Asian market and continues to develop it quickly on high-tech products.
