World Minerals helps clean up water supply in Haiti

World Minerals, a member of Imerys, has played its part in helping the Haiti relief effort to provide clean drinking water for approximately 7-10,000 people each day. Mike Hughes, seconded to Mercy Corp from ITT Filtration division, arranged delivery of some filters to Port au Prince to help clean up the devastated water supply, but had no filter aid and asked World Minerals to help.


World Minerals North America contacted Florida Crystals, one of our sugar manufacturing customers who regularly orders Celite® for use in the Dominican Republic.The local staff at American Exports' Dominican Republic warehouse immediately located some Celite® Hyflo® Super-Cel® and arranged delivery to Haiti. All this took just a few hours from start to finish.


It’s amazing how quickly you can get things done with effective global communications and the worldwide availability of Celite." said Nick Coote, of World Minerals.


“In times like these, our actions can be counted in lives and we should be proud that we’ve been able to help those suffering in unbearable conditions.” said Mike Hughes.


World Minerals have been delighted to support the global relief aid, and thank the cooperation of their colleagues, customers & partners in this effort, notably Florida Crystals, American Exports, and Central Romana Corporation.
