Tronox appoints Minelco as primary distributor for zircon in China

STAMFORD, US: Tronox Limited has appointed Minelco Asia Pacific Ltd, as its primary distributor for zircon in the People’s Republic of China. Minelco will maintain zircon stocks in Qingdao, as an initial distribution point, and will add other locations over time as demand increases. Tronox will continue to serve its existing customers directly, based on long-standing agreements.

“China is the world’s largest market for zircon ore, an essential ingredient in the production of ceramics and tiles. Through this new partnership with Minelco, we hope to expand our customer base by utilizing just-in-time deliveries to end users in various market sectors,” said Trevor Arran, President, Mineral Sands Division, Tronox.
