The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance continues to grow at a rapid pace and has added KaMin, LLC as an annual sponsor for 2018. KaMin, LLC owns kaolin mining and processing facilities in Georgia with 3 plants in Macon, Sandersville, and Wrens. They trace their roots back to 1926 and employ 350 people to process more than 35 million tons of kaolin reserves in Georgia.
“KaMin is pleased to support the fine work that the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance is doing across our great state,” said Jason Maxwell, Vice President of Operations. “Their meetings and plant tours provide wonderful learning and networking opportunities.”
KaMin, LLC is a global leader in kaolin processing and has immense reserves of premium fine and ultrafine kaolin in Georgia and Brazil. They have pioneered unique processing methods and their fine particle clays are the most widely used worldwide in numerous coatings. Their products are used in diverse industrial architectural applications such as paint, plastics, rubber, adhesives, and inks. Their kaolin is also used to coat premier paper lines that are used in posters, magazines and illustrated books.
The Georgia Manufacturing Alliance has planned a tour of their plant in Wrens, GA for April 24th. This plant is positioned on the eastern end of the kaolin clay belt, and has access to the highest quality kaolin in Georgia. The Wrens Georgia facility is the world leader in supplying ultra-fine kaolin products such as Hydragloss 90 and KaMintex, which are both instrumental in the paper industry.

“We are very excited to have one of the leading manufacturers in Georgia join GMA as an annual sponsor,” said Jason Moss, CEO of the Georgia Manufacturing Alliance. “KaMin is known worldwide for their cutting edge technologies, but a lesser known fact is their commitment to safety for their employees.
