Improves Efficiencies of Production and Logistics Operations CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, July 17 /EMWPresswire/ -- TOR Minerals International (Nasdaq: TORM), producer of synthetic titanium dioxide and color pigments, specialty aluminas, and other high performance mineral fillers today announced the completion its newest powder treatment center in Malaysia and changes to production and logistics operations designed to improve efficiencies and customer service worldwide. Dr. Olaf Karasch, CEO of TOR Minerals said, "Making our Malaysian facility state-of-the-art enables TOR Minerals to better serve the rapidly growing Asian markets, and increase worldwide production and logistics efficiencies. This enhanced efficiency has allowed the Malaysian plant to assume a significant portion of our Corpus HITOX(R) production. TOR's Corpus facility now has increased capacity to focus on producing our newly introduced TIOPREM(R) colored pigments, which have received strong initial interest from customers." TOR also announced that it will utilize two new warehouse locations in Norfolk, Virginia and Oakland, California to store HITOX(R) and serve customers in the Northeastern and Northwestern regions of North America. "Having the ability to ship product directly from our Malaysian operations to these strategically located warehouses shortens delivery times and reduces freight costs for TOR's customers," Dr. Karasch commented. Barbara Russell, TOR's CFO, added, "These changes should have a positive impact on our profitability and reduce our stocking requirements of synthetic rutile, thereby improving inventory turns and cash flows."
