OMYA Mineral Portuguesa
It is a Joint-Venture between Salmon and OMYA AG, world leader in calcium carbonate production. The plant is in Perulheira, strategically located between Porto and Lisbon, and it has been in operation since 1983. With an annual capacity of 100,000 tons, OMP produces various grades of calcium carbonate: from calcite or marble, treated and not treated, from granulated to very fine grain sizes. The plant is oriented towards the production of technical grades, supplying predominantly the plastic and coatings sectors, but it also serves the agro-industrial, glue and adhesive, ceramics and other industries. It has a modern laboratory and strict quality control policy, assuring consistent high quality in its products.
ASK Portugal is a joint-venture between Salmon and ASK Chemical, and supplies materials and services for foundries. ASK Portugal was created in 2010, having replaced Ashland Química Portuguesa, which was founded in 1985 to service the foundries industry as well as industrial water treatment services.
We supply ASK’s resins and other molding products to foundries, and have dedicated staff and logistics operations to ensure that the ASK brand remain a market leader in the sector.
Transportes José Cunha
We rely on our logistical partners to ensure that the materials we supply are delivered as per the clients’ requisites.
If our partner succeeds, we succeed. That has always been the foundation of our long-standing relationship with our main transport partner, Transportes José Cunha.
They have a small but highly response fleet of mid-size to trailer trucks that meets the increasingly complex demands of Salmon and our clients, as they have done over three generations.
