Sibelco launches its new Experience Centre

The Experience Centre was officially re-opened on June 1, 2023, in Mol, Belgium, with the presence of Antwerp Governor Cathy Berx and Sibelco CEO Hilmar Rode. 

Located near 't Kristallijn, our guesthouse, the Sibelco Experience Centre is situated at the heart of a reconstructed silica quarry (Mol) and an active silica quarry Blauwe Kei (Lommel), just 60km away from our Antwerp Headquarters, representing our company's place of birth. Celebrating the establishment of the Experience Centre in this symbolic location was truly fantastic, and we are proud to dedicate it to our purpose of 'Material solutions advancing life.'

Official opening

During this joyous occasion, Sibelco welcomed colleagues, members of the press, Governor Cathy Berx of the Province of Antwerp, and Sibelco CEO Hilmar Rode to inaugurate the updated interactive centre. Together, they officially opened it by starting the 'A Life with Minerals' video experience on the spot. 

In addition to captivating visuals, the centre features a timeline showcasing key milestones in the company's history and provides a digital demonstration of quarries and operational sites. Visitors can witness and experience how Sibelco's minerals and solutions are used in our society, playing an essential role in our everyday lives. The tour also covers the geological aspects of the area, the quarries, our operations, and the sustainability initiatives in the region. 


Always a warm welcome... 

The Sibelco Experience Centre is open to the public upon request. On July 27, 2023, the centre will be exclusively open for colleagues and neighbors.
