Balascheijka plant (Russia)
The plant in Balascheijka was acquired by Quarzwerke Group in 2006.
The silica sands produced here are primarily used in the foundry industry. Nearly all of the country’s major automobile manufacturers and machine tooling companies are loyal, long-time customers. The silica sand deposit contains more than 50 million tons, and mining has been underway since 1941. The current facility was put into operation in the mid-1970s.
Balascheijka is located in the Volga region and has a population of just under 4000.
