As part of Elkem's growth strategy we are assuming responsibility for Bluestar Xinghuo Silicones and Yongdeng Silicon Materials and integrating them into the Elkem group. This move further develops Elkem's integrated silicon value chain, from upstream quartz mining to silicon, silicones and downstream silicones specialities. At the same time as Elkem assumes responsibility for the two new entities, Elkem's silicones division is changing its name from Bluestar Silicones to Elkem Silicones.

Being part of Elkem gives a strong financial foundation for further growth, enabling Elkem Silicones to remain a competitive and agile provider of innovative silicone solutions.  Elkem Silicones will become an important player in the fast-growing silicones industry to enable our customers to deliver their potential says Frederic Jacquin, CEO of Elkem Silicones.

For more information, read our press release.

Come and learn more about our ambition and watch the interview of Frederic Jacquin.
