Established in 1965, Nuova Sima is headquartered in the province of Ancona, near Genga and the Gola della Rossa and Frasassi natural park, where it has a limestone majolica quarry exclusively controlled by the business and which is the source of the excellent raw materials utilized for Calcium Carbonate production.

The first development of Calcium Carbonate applications was implemented by Nuova Sima in the early 70s, and it evolved into the very fine Microcarb SM in the early 80s.

In the same period the study and production of flame retardant fillers gave quality responses to the PVC market, with applications of Magnesium Carbonate (Magfy) and Magnesium Hydroxide (Hydrofy) in continuous development.
