GBL and Imerys

Over time, GBL has participated in the transformation of the initial mining group into a world leader in the minerals market. GBL supports the management in the implementation of its organic and external growth strategy; the group has notably facilitated discussions and signed a shareholders’ agreement with the Kyriacopoulos family, S&B’s founding and controlling shareholder.
