We create solutions for the future...
Lhoist has over 120 years of experience in the lime and minerals industry. We have 90 subsidiaries in 25 countries.
Our proximity to our business partners is unique and sets us apart in the market. It enables us to better meet their specific needs with tailor-made solutions. We invest heavily in research and employ the best talents in the industry. New products and processes are continually being designed and optimized via our in-house ‘cross-fertilization’ of ideas. One of our challenges is to continue to uncover the further hidden value of our raw materials and resources in order to create new solutions that will benefit your business.
...by offering best quality products and services…
Quality is at the heart of everything we do. We assess products at every step of the process. Lhoist is committed to offering the best advice and most appropriate products and technical services to meet your needs.
Our offering is based on three elements:
- Expertise resulting from real long-term experience and a worldwide network of specialists
- An extensive product portfolio of reagents and components for all applications; we provide the most appropriate quality of product to fit your precise requirements
- Associated services that include technical trials, logistics, analytical measurement equipment, specific reagent analysis and supply chain services. We also provide storage and dosing elements from technical engineering services such as VMI (Vendor Management Inventory).
…in cooperation with our customers.
We develop unique tools in direct cooperation with customers. Mineral- and lime-based products are often a local concern which means that we can bring our global view and input to businesses close to our quarries. Synergy projects allow us to analyze the use of our products in your processes and help you improve total cost of ownership (TCO) and/or value in use (VIU). Many such projects have already been successfully rolled out in different areas, in the steel industry and in environmental applications, as well as in the chemistry and pulp & paper industries, to name just a few.
