    The high levels of quality objectives in all phases of our production process have helped us very effectively in the success achieved with our clients in our more than 50 years of operation.

    To achieve and maintain this success, the main quality objective of Caobar S.A. is to ensure that in all activities related to the manufacture and delivery of kaolin and silica, the technical, legal and qualitative requirements that have been defined for them are met.

    The optimisation of this quality, associated with both activities and products, has led Caobar, S.A. to implement a Quality System
