Innord Appoints Ginger International as Sales Agent for Europe and Asia
GITI is managed by Thomas Kruemmer, based in Asia, who has over 30 years experience as an executive director, working in top management positions for world leading commodity companies in chemicals, pharmaceutical raw materials, fertilizers, synthetic rubber and steel. Mr. Kruemmer acted as Chair of the Metal & Mining Working Group of the EU Chamber of Commerce in China (2012-2016) where he was involved in trade issues including rare earths. Mr. Kruemmer is an alumni of the EU Executive Training program in Japan and currently serves on the board of two privately owned companies in Singapore and Shanghai. As the head of GITI, a family-owned private limited trading and consulting company focused on rare earths, Mr. Kruemmer has developed excellent relationships with the principal companies active in the rare earths sector including manufacturers, traders and end users.
“With Geomega and Innord getting established as a leader in rare earth recycling and production outside of China, we are growing our team and are proud that we were able to retain a person with the knowledge and experience in the rare earths sector such as Mr. Kruemmer. With his presence in Asia, we hope to be able to secure more magnet waste feeds to be processed by our ISR technology here in Canada; however, it’s his knowledge of the European and Asian end users that will ultimately be the most important in finding buyers for Innord’s products. We are now establishing the framework needed to be in a position to succeed once Innord’s technology is fully validated and we begin scaling up towards throughput capacities of up to 1.5 tonnes per day of feed material.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of GéoMégA and Innord.
“Considering the overall conditions in the current rare earths landscape, it is our view that Geomega’s concept is among the most feasible in the industry. We confidently join hands with Geomega and Innord, to work towards a successful market development of their products,” says Thomas Kruemmer of Ginger International Trade & Investment Pte., Ltd.
Mr. Kruemmer was granted 400,000 stock options of the Corporation at a price of $0.09 per share for a period of five years in accordance with the terms of the stock option plan of the Corporation.
