:: Argex Appoints Head of Laboratory


  • Experienced pilot plant manager joins team
  • Improved costs, ip protection and time lines
  • Company continues toward full scale production

Argex Titanium Inc. is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Maria Alejandra Jimeno as Lab Manager at its R&D Centre in Valleyfield, Quebec. She will manage Argex’s laboratory team that is already in place. Ms. Jimeno will fill a key role in the execution of the Company’s strategy of moving rapidly to production.

Ms. Jimeno has a Bachelor degree in Materials Engineering and has extensive experience in managing pilot plant facilities for large specialty chemical companies. She will report directly to Enrico Di Cesare, Argex’s Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Technology.

As announced on October 29, 2013, Argex’s new R&D Centre is currently operational on the same site as the proposed full scale plant. “The R&D Centre is a strategic part of Argex’s transformation into a large scale producer of pigment grade titanium dioxide," said Mr. Di Cesare. “It allows us to better protect our intellectual property while reducing costs and timelines."

Mr. Roy Bonnell, President & CEO of Argex, stated: "With the addition of Ms. Jimeno, we continue to add experienced and dedicated personnel into the positions we need for our next phase of development. Ms. Jimeno complements our in-house R&D strategy to further build out our technology leadership. By including the R&D centre in the same facility as our planned full scale production plant, we will achieve speed and efficiency gains in technology development, as well as in plant construction."
