Sibelco was founded in 1872, initially supplying silica sand from deposits in Flanders to Belgium's major glass producers. Our association with the clay industry stretches back even further, with our UK operations producing world-renowned ball clay in the south west of England for over 300 years.
Today, we supply a vast portfolio of specialist minerals for use in a wide range of industries and applications. Throughout this growth our values have held firm and we remain family-owned, always taking a long-term perspective and valuing our role as a key partner in our customers' futures.
Built to innovate
Our innovation programme is driven by market trends and the changing needs of our customers, often focused on energy reduction and more efficient use of raw materials.
We operate 26 specialist Technical Centres worldwide, each one focused on a specific application, from glass and ceramics through to coatings and sports surfaces.
