About Asiagilsonite

AsiaGilsonite gilsonite supplier

In 1990 to 1996, we were working in the field of exporting refinery bitumen and minerals, during a visit to the mines of western Iran in 1997, we came across a substance that was used for the miners and was completely unknown to the people of the bitumen industry. In 1998, after about a year of study, it became clear that fortunately, Iran is one of the few countries that have natural bitumen mines, which before Us, no one had a proper understanding of this substance in Iran.

We are the founder of this industry in Iran and our company is the first who could admit to the world that we can produce Gilsonite with a comparable quality.all my current colleagues joined this industry after us. 

We became interested in the market of India, China, Malaysia and after a few years we became the main pole of this material in the region, which was a great honor for me and my company to serve our country.
