Timcal announces change of name to Imerys Graphite & Carbon

April 1, 2014

Timcal Graphite & Carbon, headquartered in Bodio, Switzerland, has announced the company is changing its name to Imerys Graphite & Carbon, reflecting the group’s parent company branding.


Timcal produces and markets a large variety of synthetic and natural graphite powders, conductive carbon blacks and water-based dispersions. The group lists seven manufacturing plants across the globe and employs some 450 people.

“This step to a common brand will increase the visibility of Imerys and will also improve the co-operation and communication with our customers and suppliers,” stated the company.

In 1994 Timcal, at the time called Lonza G+T, was taken over by the French group Imetal. In 1999 Imetal changed its name to Imerys and the parent group now brands itself a world leader in mineral-based specialty solutions for industry.

Imerys Graphite & Carbon will be exhibiting at the PM 2014 World Congress in Florida, USA, 18-22 May, booth 328.
