Thiele reaches two-year safety milestone

On June 29, Thiele Kaolin Company achieved another milestone in safety performance by working two years without a lost time accident. Further, in 2006, Thiele was accident free in February, March, April and June, and has had only three reportable accidents all year.


President Sam Smith addresses the employees at the appreciation lunch.

"We did it, again!" Thiele Kaolin President Sam Smith said at a company luncheon. "When I walk through our mines and processing facilities, I am continually reminded of the focus and dedication it takes on every employee's part to do their job efficiently but with safety in mind."

Thiele Kaolin Company is one of the world's leading sources of processed kaolin clay, with kaolin plant operations in Sandersville and Wrens, and slurry facilities in Wisconsin Rapids, Wi., and Gavle, Sweden. Thiele mines, processes, blends and delivers the full spectrum of kaolin coating and filler pigments, tailored to meet the specific needs of individual applications. An emphasis on quality has been a company tradition for more than five decades.

"Safety is the number one priority at Thiele Kaolin Company," said Greg Frazier, Thiele's Manager of Safety and Health. "I am extremely proud of our employees' daily attention to all facets of safety. Thiele Kaolin is truly a blessed company to have so many outstanding, dedicated employees. I fully expect to have another safety record-setting year in 2006."
