Huber Welcomes Georgia State Senator Frank Ginn on Tour of Marble Hill Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) Underground Mine and Manufacturing Operation

In the top photo, Georgia State Senator Frank Ginn (left) listens intently as Matt O’Brien (right), Vice President and General Manager of Huber’s Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) business, explains how we mine calcium carbonate underground at our Marble Hill, Georgia operation as Huber’s Lane Shaw (middle), Technology and Business Development Director for GCC, looks on. In the left photo immediately above, Heleen Murphy (second from left), Marble Hill Production Manager, gives an overview of Marble Hill’s manufacturing processes to (from left) John Phillips, County Engineer for Georgia’s Franklin County; Lane Shaw; Phil Munro, County Engineer for Georgia’s Madison County; Senator Ginn; and Jason Ellis, Marble Hill Plant Manager. In the right photo immediately above, Jason Ellis points out a key calcium carbonate manufacturing technique to Senator Ginn during the tour.

It was our distinct pleasure July 27 to welcome Georgia State Senator Frank Ginn to our Marble Hill, Georgia, Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) mining and manufacturing facility.  Sen. Ginn, a friend of the Georgia Mining Industries, visited our Marble Hill underground mine and plant for a comprehensive tour of the operation to gain a better understanding of how we mine and produce our array of industrial GCC products.

Sen. Ginn was accompanied on his visit by Lee Lemke, Executive Director of the Georgia Mining Association; John Phillips, County Engineer for Georgia’s Franklin County; and Phil Munro, County Engineer for Georgia’s Madison County.  Huber personnel directing the tour included Matt O’Brien, Vice President and General Manager of Huber’s GCC business; Lane Shaw, Director of Technology and Business Development for GCC; Jason Ellis, Marble Hill Plant Manager; and Heleen Murphy, Marble Hill Production Manager.

Following an introductory meeting that included historical information about the site and what the visitors would see as they toured the mine and manufacturing areas, the group received an important safety demonstration and presentation so they were prepared to safely walk around the operation.  The tour was comprised of a visit underground to get an up-close look at how Huber mines the GCC we ultimately bring out of the mine to process at our manufacturing operation.  As the guests toured the manufacturing and processing areas, they were able to see firsthand our recent capacity expansion at Marble Mill which resulted in Huber continuing to support its customers’ growth strategies with increased capacity for both medium fine and fine GCC products.

Huber’s Kemgard® Highly Efficient Smoke Suppressants for Rigid PVC Applications

From PVC pipe to modern aircraft interior panels, Kemgard® smoke suppressants will help meet and exceed your most demanding smoke suppression requirements in PVC applications.

Our Kemgard® molybdate smoke suppressants have proven themselves time after time in the most demanding rigid PVC applications.  We’re pleased to share a new technical bulletin chock-full of information regarding the use and efficient performance of our exclusive Kemgard® molybdate smoke suppressant compounds in rigid PVC.  

The comprehensive bulletin highlights the smoke suppression performance of Kemgard® MZM vs. a Kemgard® 911C/alumina trihydrate (ATH) blend vs. ammonium octamolybdate (AOM), which is much more expensive than the Kemgard technology.  We invite you to contact us for more information or to obtain product samples.  Here’s a link to click to access the technical bulletin http://bit.ly/2uZDa2G
