Omya in Russia was established in 1994 when a representative office was founded. Today the Omya Group has 3 limited liability companies in Russia employing about 100 employees.

With our sites and field representatives we are present in all regions of Russia, near the markets and the customers. In this way, we are able to react rapidly to demands and the delivery times are accordingly short.

Omya is a leading global producer of industrial minerals – mainly fillers and pigments derived from calcium carbonate and dolomite – and a worldwide distributor of specialty chemicals.

The company's major markets are forest products (fiber-based products such as paper, board and tissue), polymers, building materials (paints, coatings, sealants, adhesives and construction materials) as well as life sciences (food, feed, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, environmental products and agriculture).

Founded in 1884 in Switzerland, Omya has a global presence extending to more than 180 locations in over 50 countries with 8,000 employees.
