Strategic Supplier Award Achievement

Sparks, MD, USA, March 10, 2021 – Active Minerals Internationals LLC (AMI) is pleased to announce they are a recipient of the Strategic Cooperation Supplier Award from Henan Guangyuan New Material Co., Ltd (Guangyuan) in Linzhou, China. Guangyuan is a top 500 private enterprise business in China and a producer of electronic fiber glass used in the production of printed circuit boards and the copper clad layer in electronic circuits. Their products are sold throughout Asia, Europe, and North America.

An awards banquet was held February 18th by Guangyaun with nearly 100 suppliers in attendance. The banquet was the culmination of a two-day supplier conference that included factory tours and talks from procurement and corporate executives. AMI was honored to be invited to the conference and further strengthen the partnership between the two companies.

AMI was one of only six suppliers who received the Strategic Cooperation Supplier Award from Guangyuan.  It is a testament to the nearly ten years as a reliable and trusted supplier to Guangyuan. AMI began supplying high quality air-float kaolin from its Gordon, Georgia, USA operations when Guangyuan fired up their first furnace in 2013. Kaolin is an important source of low-iron alumina for electronic grade fiberglass yarn and AMI has expertly kept up with the growing demand from Guangyuan’s successful business. Most recently throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and global shipping crisis, AMI leveraged its logistics, customer service and production expertise as well as shipping industry relationships to keep Guangyuan and other customers in the region fully stocked. AMI Vice President of Sales Asia Pacific, Bill Strauss, remarked “Receiving this award exemplifies how the whole AMI team adheres to the company principals of integrity, innovation, teamwork, and execution every day to make sure customers worldwide have an uninterrupted supply.”

The award was accepted by AMI General Manager Specialty Sales China, Jeason Fan, who also had the honor of giving a short speech after receiving the award.
