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.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
