The agreement was signed in the Chinese group's offices in the presence of Zhu Xuebin, its Senior Vice-President (on the left of the picture above), and Arnaud Vigier, Director of the Eramet Shanghai sales office (on the right of the picture above), and joining them remotely from Paris were Kleber Silva, CEO in charge of the Mining and Metals Division (DMM), Paul Desportes, Commercial Director of DMM and German Molina, Director of Sales in the Manganese Ore BU.
This is the 5th signing ceremony that has taken place in the past few days, bringing the contractual commitment of the five largest Chinese customers to around 1.5 MT in 2021.
This agreement is a recognition of Comilog's new status as a recognized market leader.
