Global Markets

Global market shares for AMI’s two major product lines in the year 2008 were ~50% for gel quality attapulgite and ~30% for air float kaolin. Together these two product lines represented approximately half of AMI’s global sales, with distributed products such as silica, colemanite, fluorspar and high purity aluminosilicates comprising the remaining 50% of sales. Its high ranking position in the industrial minerals community has been achieved by successfully implementing a simple strategy; bring value to the customer by combining AMI’s technical expertise, high quality products, and logistics know-how with local “boots-on-the-ground” support of its customers.
