The addition of the Kemgard portfolio strengthens Huber’s current alumina trihydrate (ATH) and magnesium hydroxide (MDH) product range.

“This is an exciting acquisition, as it enhances our presence in the market and will be beneficial to Kemgard customers,” says Jerry Bertram, Vice President and General Manager of Huber’s Industrial Minerals business. “The Kemgard products complement our existing line-up perfectly, as the marketplace continues its shift toward more environmentally-friendly flame retardants and smoke suppressants.”

The Kemgard products will continue to be manufactured in Coffeyville, Kansas, USA, and brand grades and product specifications will remain the same.

Huber Engineered Materials is headquartered in Atlanta.
