Our History

We began producing carbon black in the Ostrava channel in 1938. In 1968 our operations moved to Valasske Mezirici. We formed a joint venture with DEZA in 1991 and then launched two new production lines in 1994. Today, we produce and sell carbon black for tires and industrial rubber products. Our sales and manufacturing teams are based in key locations throughout Europe to serve customers of all sizes and requirements.

A major milestone 

In May 2014, we celebrated 20 years of carbon black production in Valmez under the Cabot brand.

CS Cabot Foundation: Committed to Education

The CS Cabot Foundation was established in 1997 to support students. During its existence roughly 600 students received scholarships amounting to nearly CZK 7 million. Please submit any inquiries or written applications to Lenka Jirickova.

Valmez granted cholarships and scholars per academic year

The foundation annually grants scholarships to undergraduates who achieve strong academic results but lack sufficient financial resources. The amount of the scholarship is dependent on the social situation of the applicant and his or her study results. Typically it does not exceed half of the student's assumed study expenses.

Students from the region of Valasske Mezirici are preferred for the scholarship. In most cases, the selected students are supported only after successfully completing their first year of university. In the case of extraordinary circumstances, the foundation will also consider grants for students of secondary school or students in their first year of university. The applicants can apply for the scholarship for the following academic year annually until the end of July.
