Headquartered in Chesterland, Ohio, Fairmount Minerals is a market-driven company with strategically located facilities in North America, Europe, and Asia, supported by a global distribution and customer support network.
While Fairmount Minerals is one of the largest producers of industrial sand in North America, our story and our mission are no longer simply about sand. Instead, Fairmount has become a world-leading expert in the science and art of transforming sand into value-added products whose performance far exceeds ordinary expectations.
In deeper and richer ways than many other organizations, Fairmount embraces the principles of sustainable development. We continue to make investments in our people, our business partners, our communities, and our environmental stewardship programs that secure not only our ability to operate today, but also create a bright future for our business and the communities where we live and work.
Worldwide, Fairmount Minerals employs nearly 800 people, and produced and shipped more than 6.0 million tons of sand and value-added sand products in 2011.
Fairmount Minerals’ global operations include 9 mining and mineral processing plants and 9 manufacturing and coating facilities, 1 Resin producing operation, 3 custom blending plants and 4 administrative and R&D offices. These facilities are located in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Denmark, and China.
Our global logistics capabilities allow us to effectively serve customers in North America, mainland Europe, the North Sea basin, South America, China, the Middle East, India, South Africa, Japan, and Malaysia.
