Omya partners with leading blue-chip manufacturers of specialty materials to offer a full portfolio of pigments, binders and additives to customers worldwide. We also distribute engineered materials as well as specialty ingredients, supporting customers with technical and regulatory advice and application development.

Celebrating 130 years

Just ten years after Omya was founded, we created our Global Distribution Services, which provides all our markets worldwide with a carefully curated portfolio of ingredients and specialty materials.


Complete solutions for customers worldwide

Our portfolio of specialty materials sits alongside our range of calcium carbonate and other mineral products, enabling us to deliver a complete solution to customers. Omya’s breadth of supply means our technical teams can offer customers the right products to solve their challenges, in one straightforward package. Supported by our worldwide regulatory teams, this ‘one-stop-shop’ approach reduces complexity in procurement and stock management as well as ensuring synergies between the different raw materials.
