Omya is a worldwide mineral processing company, with North, Central, and South American headquarters located in Cincinnati, Ohio.
In Vermont, Omya quarries marble, which then is ground, milled, and purified to produce a finely ground calcium carbonate. (watch a video of our operations – click here). Calcium carbonate is a necessary ingredient used in a wide array of consumer products ranging from paint and paper, to vinyl siding and diapers. With over 120 employees, we are a large and economically significant employer in Vermont.
We are serious about our obligations to regulatory and environmental matters but equally so to our employees and our local communities. We are investing in our Vermont operations to ensure good paying jobs for Vermonters, a state of the art production facility, and quality products for our customers. Our commitments include providing a high performance workplace with opportunities for advancement, and capital improvements to enhance environmental protection.
We believe an informed conversation about our operations is a necessary component to our success. We acknowledge that although Omya is in compliance with VT State rules and regulations, our operations have impacts in the local community and we actively address issues of concern with our neighbors and others. We are diligent in our efforts to continue encouraging and promoting constructive dialogue.
