Macon kaolin company buys major ownership of Brazilian company

Macon-based KaMin LLC, a kaolin company, has acquired a major interest in a Brazilian-based kaolin company that is located next to “some of the highest quality kaolin reserves in the world,” according to a news release.

The company, CADAM S.A. and its subsidiaries, produce and supply fine particle size kaolin to the premium coated paper producers across the world.

“This acquisition represents our continued investment in kaolin products that deliver value to our customers,” KaMin President Harlan Archer said in the release. “Our combined production and logistics capabilities allow us to improve our ability to address our customer’s technical needs and deliver cost expectations to all regions of the world.”

Both companies supply kaolin clays to the paper industry, but KaMin’s products also serve many non-paper applications including ink, rubber, plastics, adhesives and paints.
