Introducing Gleason Clay Company

Gleason Clay Company, LLC LogoWe are pleased to announce that a new entity, Gleason Clay Company LLC (GCC), has entered into an agreement with Unimin Corporation to purchase Unimin’s Gleason, TN ball clay facility and reserves. The newly created GCC is an affiliate of Old Hickory Clay Company. Closing of the transaction is expected to take place soon. We welcome all of the customers of the Gleason facility to GCC!

GCC will continue to offer the same line of ball clay products as before under Unimin’s ownership. The new company will be working closely with Unimin Corporation for a seamless and trouble-free transition for our customers. Rest assured that the same staff and operations team at the Gleason facility will be taking care of your ball clay requirements under the GCC banner, as they have for more than 20 years.

Until the transaction closes on or about August 29, 2014, please continue to place your orders with Unimin, as usual. All orders for fulfillment after the closing date will be transferred to GCC, so there will be no need to place new orders. We will be happy to provide whatever information is necessary for you to create a vendor account for GCC upon request prior to the closing.

After the transaction closes, GCC Customer Service will be available at (731) 648-5596 (tel) or (731) 648-5990 (fax). GCC’s Customer Service Representatives will be Lindsey Brasure , orders@gleasonclaycompany.com and Rose Brawner, rbrawner@gleasonclaycompany.com. The remittance address for GCC invoices will be P.O Box 111, Gleason, TN 38229. Quality Control and Technical Support will be provided by Mike Noss, mnoss@gleasonclaycompany.com, and supported by Ken Bougher, GCC’s Technical Director.

Please feel free to contact any of us if you have any questions about this announcement. We are very excited about this new relationship and we look forward to serving you!

Sincerely yours,
Gleason Clay Company, LLC
