HOW WE STARTED  |  OUR STORY

Plomp Mineral Services BV was founded in 1979 in the Netherlands as a consultancy company in the processing of industrial minerals. With that experience we started importing and exporting industrial minerals ourselves in the early eighties and build up our own mineral portfolio.

 

In 1985 TYMO Mineralien GmbH was founded in Germany to further expand our mineral sales and product range in the German-speaking countries.

 

With Acomet Metales y Minerales S.L. in Spain an agreement was signed in 2015 to strengthen our links which already existed since 2005 and which enables us to grow further in Spain and Portugal.

 

Since foundation we are a family-owned business, which allows us not only to make quick decisions but also encourages us to look for long-term growth and success.

 

We are proud to have grown our sales in 40 years to more than 250 customers in over 50 countries on 5 continents.
