History

Francis Flower was acquired in December 2018 by LKAB Minerals. The company was originally formed in 1953 and has developed a profile as a sustainable minerals company that makes the most out of resources.

The business has grown from quarrying and lime burning to providing a range of high quality powdered minerals, which include Anhydrite Binder (Gypsol) for flowing screeds, limestone powders for concrete and asphalt filler, super-fine white marble powders for paints, plastics and pharmaceuticals and, more recently, GGBS for concrete. 

Uniquely, the thread between our products is that they originate as by-products from industrial processes, reducing the need for mineral extraction and landfill, thereby delivering sustainable environmental solutions for the future.

Through strategic investments Francis Flower has expanded and now specialises in minerals management, storage and processing, as well as agricultural services.
