We are the main producer of silica sand for glass industries in Iran

We own three different quarries in Ghermezabad , Qhezelqhaya and Varkaroud which are all located some 40 km. from the plant and their reserves are estimated to be several million tons . Geologically a fine top Quartzite bed is located in our quarries which is exploited by means of explosives and modern machinery at a rate of 600,000 tons per year and transported to the beneficiation plant . Our beneficiation plant , equipped with the most modern machinery and advance technology of mass production is ready to provide our clients on time delivery of quality silica sand at the lowest costs with stable chemical and physical specifications agreed by the customers . Our customers are mainly huge sheet and float glass as well as container glass industries but with respect to our present annual production capacity of 360,000 tons we are still capable of supplying new markets and customers.
