For over 30 years, The Moltan Company, L.P. has been a leading distributor of absorbent products made from 100% natural earthen minerals for use in a wide variety of applications. The quality of our products is guaranteed by seamless operation, which can only be maintained through our direct ownership of raw deposits, processing, packaging, sales and marketing. Our value-added products include diatomaceous earth, a naturally occurring mineral with superior absorptive ability; conventional granular montmorillonite clay formulations; and natural zeolites. The Moltan Company was founded in 1976 near Middleton, Tennessee, where our first clay producing plant was built.
Middleton, located 60 miles east of Memphis, is where the heart of the Mid-Continent clay deposit is located and where Moltan mines our montmorillonite clay products. In 1988, the Moltan Company opened our second plant 45 miles east of Reno, Nevada. This plant produces high porosity products from diatomaceous earth. These products are considered the premium products of the industry. Our corporate office and customer service team are located in Memphis, Tennessee.
On March 1 2013, EP Minerals completed its acquisition of the assets of The Moltan Company, including their Fernley, Nevada diatomaceous earth (DE) operations, their Middleton, Tennessee montmorillonite clay operations, and their Memphis, TN headquarters.
Field support and customer service are vital to your business. Moltan has customer field support in multiple locations across the country. Moltan operates two state-of-the-art facilities. The Middleton, Tennessee, plant produces montmorillonite clay products. The Fernley, Nevada, plant produces diatomaceous earth products.
Moltan has a state-of-the-art manufacturing process. After the natural mineral has been mined, crushed and fed into the kiln, it is heated to required specifications and then crushed to final product size. After screening, the product goes to the packaging process. Moltan has modernized form, fill and seal equipment to provide premium packaging which offers a high level of puncture resistance. The high impact printing film also provides excellent moisture resistance.
