New Day Aluminum Holdings LLC disclosed that its Dutch subsidiary has closed on the acquisition of all the share capital of ARC Fused Alumina from Mircal SA, a subsidiary of Imerys SA fully and directly owned by it.

Mircal was required by the European Commission to divest this business as a condition to its 2016 acquisition of certain assets from Alteo Holding. The New Day transaction received European Commission approval in September and has now completed all other closing conditions, including consultative proceedings with the company’s Works Council.

ARC Fused Alumina, located in La Bâthie, France, employs over 150 workers and operates facilities producing a number of specialty alumina products, including white fused alumina, bubble alumina, Abral® and silicon nitrates. The company’s products have multi-application uses in the ceramics, flooring, abrasives and refractory industries.

David D’Addario, chief executive officer of New Day, commented, “We are pleased to welcome the ARC Fused Alumina business and its employees to the New Day family, and excited for the opportunity to build upon the rich 120-plus year history of the La Bâthie based business.

This acquisition helps diversify New Day’s portfolio, both geographically and in product mix. La Bâthie provides us entry into a new market sector while better positioning New Day for more acquisition activity and integration on a global scale.
