We are 1,000 people serving 500 customers with more than 1,700 delivery locations globally. We supply 30% of the world’s need for refined borates from our world-class mine in Boron, California, about 100 miles northeast of Los Angeles. We mine, manufacture, and refine borate products for use in glazes and enamels, including borax decahydrate, boric oxide, Dehybor (anhydrous borax), Neobor (sodium borate), Optibor (boric acid), and specialty powders.
