Profile of the Quarzwerke Group

We are an important European producer of mineral raw materials. As an independent, family-run business, we have 129 years of experience with efficient processing technology and high-quality deposits of raw materials.
Our company is primarily active in the extraction, processing and refining of industrial minerals, particularlyquartzkaolinfeldsparwollastonite and mica.

In modern production facilities, these raw materials are processed, in some cases surface-modified, and further refined to produce about 700 different high-quality products that are sold in 50 countries around the world. Our raw materials make valuable contributions in a wide range of industries and diverse areas of application. In particular, our raw materials are widely used in the paper, glass, foundry, ceramic and rubber industries, as well as in the production of paints, lacquers and coatings and in the area of construction chemicals.

As an independent family company, we strive to create added value in a long-term, sustainable manner. We are a competent and reliable partner for our customers, with highly motivated and responsible employees. We also recognize our obligations to society and accept responsibility for the environmental consequences of our business activities.
