ABM International Company

The company "ABM International" is one of the leading companies in the mining industry in terms of exploitation and processing of calcium carbonate, which is performed in state-of-the-art production facilities. ABM International, in the production plant in Palić, is engaged in grinding industrial minerals obtained from its own mines and offers a large selection of products used in various industries, primarily in the paint industry, plastics, construction, animal feed and agriculture. Our products applied in various industries give the products resistance, pigment properties, strength, viscosity, mechanical properties, nutritional value and more.

Our wish is to ensure secure employment for as many of our fellow citizens as possible through constant development, and at the same time, by contributing our products to foreign markets, we will contribute to the development of the economy in the territory of Subotica and Kučevo as well as the entire region.

Processing is performed in state-of-the-art facilities with constant quality control in order to satisfy even the most demanding customers. The total area of the plant in Palić is about 20,000 m2, of which more than 3,000 m2 is under the roof. The full-capacity processing plant can produce more than 60,000 tons of micronized limestone per year. The total area of the plant in Kucevo is approximately 34,000 m2, of which more than 3,500 m2 is under the roof. Inside the building there is an electrical substation as well as a railway. The processing capacity of the plant in Kucevo is approximately 200,000 tons per year.

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate with slight admixtures of other minerals, mainly magnesium. Most limestone rocks are of biochemical origin, which means they are formed by the deposition of marine shells. Limestone can also be of chemical origin, as is the case with Travertite. Due to the high percentage of calcium, limestone is generally light in color but there are many variations.

Limestone from our quarry has a high percentage of calcium carbonate, more than 98% and a high whiteness index compared to magnesium oxide-MgO. The total certified reserves are over 23 million tons.
The excavation and processing of stone takes place in several stages:

• removal of tailings
• blasting - in blocks or loose depending on the way the stone structure is processed, depth and hardness
• separation
• crushing
• transport
• storage
• final processing

The Kuchevo quarry is equipped with state-of-the-art machinery for exploitation and transportation, such as: Brown Lenox crusher, Hyundai 290 LC-7A excavator, Hyundai HL760 loaders, MAN dump trucks and other necessary equipment. The limestone from this quarry has a high calcium carbonate content of more than 98% and a high whiteness index compared to magnesium oxide-MgO.

To ensure long-term success, we must minimize environmental impact and contribute to the quality of life in the local community. In the long term, we are constantly committed to meeting these goals. Given the increasing number of sustainability challenges, we are focusing on issues that are a priority for our business:

• natural resource management
• packaging & recycling
• employee health
• engaging suppliers
• the welfare of the local community

For each of these questions, we set goals, monitoring and measuring the progress achieved just as rigorously as in other segments of our business, striving to maintain the highest standard of conduct and integrity in the business. ABM International strives to serve its customers through product quality and flexibility to meet all the requirements of its business partners. The dynamic leadership of the company has created a strong bond of mutual understanding between the management, employees and clients of the company through the customized products that our company produces.
