Argex to establish its R&D Centre in Valleyfield

17 May 2013

Following Argex’s announcement in April that it had selected Valleyfield, Quebec, Canada, as the site for its first titanium dioxide production plant, the company has said it will also establish a new R&D Centre in Valleyfield, as well as relocate the operation of its current test facility in Mississauga, Ontario, to the planned site of its future industrial-sized plant.

"Our R&D Centre will be relied on for continuous improvement as well as to support operations and commissioning of the industrial-sized plant,” said Roy Bonnell, President and CEO of Argex.

"The Argex R&D Centre will drive ongoing innovation as we continue on the pathway to production,” stated Enrico Di Cesare, Argex’s VP of Technology and COO, "The close integration of our R&D activities with the development of our industrial scale plant has many operational advantages which we expect will ensure optimal performance at the plant.”
