Ian Adams

Regional Manager

Currently responsible for Rio Tinto Borates commercial and market development activities in Sub-Sahara Africa, Middle East (including Pakistan), UK and Nordics, Baltics, Russia and FSU territories. I have been working in the borate industry with Rio Tinto for over 40 years, covering all products and applications and across a number of different territories. Agricultural market development on boron has been and continues to be a very rewarding experience, particularly in parts of the world like South Asia and Africa, where a more balanced approach to crop nutrition really does bring significant yield benefits to those agricultural communities who really need it.

Rio Tinto Borates is a global leader in the supply and science of borates - naturally-occurring minerals containing boron and other elements. Refined borates are essential nutrients for crops. We are 1,000 people serving 500 customers with over 1,700 delivery locations globally. We supply 30% of the world's need for refined borates from our world-class mine in Boron, California, about 100 miles east of Los Angeles.  Learn more about Rio Tinto
