Guzman Minerals is an affiliate company of Guzman Global. Headquartered in Spain, it supplies industrial minerals, primarily to the ceramic industry but also to other sectors including glass, plastics, refractory, abrasives, and paints.
Guzman Minerals has a strong set of core values which revolve around caring for people and building honest, long-lasting and respectful relationships with their workers, communities and customers. The company became a member of the UN Global Compact in 2011 after identifying the principals of the Compact were an excellent fit for their ethos. Guzman Minerals seeks to address global issues but have a local, tangible impact, making real change in people’s lives and creating shared value with their activities.
The UN Global Compact provides us with a framework that suits our core values and allows us to think globally and act locally.
‘Think globally, act locally’ is the guiding principle of Guzman Mineral’s WE AR3 community engagement program. The company collaborates with local communities to tackle deep structural issues such as unemployment, poverty and other causes for social exclusion.
Guzman Mineral’s successful employee development programme has three pillars and is designed to support their value of mutual respect and the well-being of people, enabling all employees to feel valued and an integral part of the company.
