Unimin’s logistics capabilities allow us to effectively serve customers across North America. In many locations, rail-to-truck transloads and fixed storage terminals are the vital delivery links between our manufacturing plants and active shale plays. These flexible bulk warehouses are strategically located to ensure a reliable and 24/7 access to the volumes required for today’s demand. In the most demanding plays, investments in fixed storage ensure contaminant-free storage and faster turn-around times to access these ISO quality products.
To support growing demand in the Permian Basin, Unimin is proud to announce the development of a new West Texas plant. The new facility will be capable of producing up to 5 million tons of regional sand per year and will serve as another channel by which Unimin will fully and efficiently source product closer to the wellhead.
