Established in 1987 with plant locations in West Virginia and Virginia, we drive more profitable innovation for the global industrial leaders we serve with sustainable consistency in quality product, source stability, logistics, and service. We are certified to ISO 9001:2015 standards with an on-site ISO certified lab for product monitoring and analysis and work with ACE Products and Consulting for research and development initiatives – to ensure top quality product, optimal process, and overall formula improvements for our customers.
Our signature product–Austin Black 325–is one of the most cost effective and versatile organic fillers available, compared to other clay, talc, and calcium carbonate fillers. It can reduce product weight and improve profitability, while increasing processability and flowability. Austin Black 325 is also produced via a CO² neutral process and stable sources, so it offers more sustainability and better long-term cost planning than competitor products. Our consistent, high-quality product and highly-attentive customer support positions manufacturers for success and inspires long standing collaborations. With three US plants for processing, eight local sources for raw materials, our on-site lab, and third-party lab, reliability is ensured. Likewise, on the delivery and logistics side of the business, our 30 years of experience and complete control of operations help us to provide exceptional services and on-time global delivery. All of this adds up to high marks from customers and partners for product and service. In fact, 94% of customers surveyed rated service from CFI at above average or excellent. In markets where product consistency and delivery require precision, CFI and Austin Black 325 deliver.
