The Pittong Operation located 40km west of Ballarat in Victoria is the only hyrdous processing kaolin plant in Australia, reliably producing kaolin since it opened in October 1972.

Since inception, its operators have developed extensive sales channels in Australia, New Zealand and the APAC region. This year Suvo will recognise Pittong’s five decades of continuous service, a significant milestone in our history.

In our celebration preparation, we uncovered these fantastic images showing just how much the operation has grown and developed over five decades:
