150 years leading in industrial minerals
2022 is the 150th anniversary of the start of Sibelco. We are marking the occasion with a series of events across the company, joining with colleagues, customers and stakeholders worldwide to celebrate our rich industrial heritage and to look to the future.
Sibelco was founded in 1872, initially supplying silica sand from deposits in Flanders to Belgium’s major glass producers. Over the past century and a half, we have grown into a global material solutions business, today operating 120 production sites in 31 countries with a team of over 5,000 people and a clear strategy through 2025 and beyond.
