Community / Events

Community involvement is an important part of who we are as individuals, and who we are as a company. Omya employees give back in a variety of ways by: volunteering to pick up roadside trash; providing children’s activities at community events; coordinating blood drives and food drives; involvement with schools; participating on local boards; and coaching youth sports.


Conversations around the area are often centered on rebuilding a “sense of community”. At Omya, we take these conversations to heart, and work diligently to interact with various individuals living and working in towns where we have a presence. From Green-Up to Issue Teams, donations to community events, we are glad to be a part of the conversation. If you have thoughts about how we can help foster a sense of community, please drop us a line.

Omya Community Survey 2010

To better understand the public’s familiarity with Omya’s operations and its impacts on the local community, a survey was conducted by the Center for Rural Studies at the University of Vermont in November 2010. This confidential survey was sent to randomly-selected households in the area. For a graphical representation of the Center for Rural Studies findings, charted by Omya, click on the link below:
