Active Minerals International LLC (AMI) recently announced that it has begun construction of a new mill at its Gordon, Ga., facility. The facility will reportedly increase existing capacity through the addition of a fifth mill and the acquisition of related equipment.

The Gordon facility currently has four mills producing air-float kaolin. This announcement reportedly represents the second of two phases of the site’s expansion to increase the capacity and service capabilities of the company’s kaolin production operations.

“We are excited to add capacity to our Gordon operations, which will bolster our leading market position in kaolin production,” said Dennis C. Parker, president and CEO. “As the global demand for electronic fiberglass continues to grow due to increasing applications, from mobile phones to cars and trucks to home appliances, the Gordon expansion will ensure we are well-positioned to capture the opportunities across our served markets.”
