Klen fires up as market turns

Klen International’s work in the gold sector offers a valuable insight into how Western Australian companies are taking the expertise from the state’s resources industry and developing it well beyond the mine pit.

The company’s Neerabup manufacturing facility is one of a half dozen worldwide producing fire assay flux, a chemical used by assaying laboratories to test for gold in drill core samples, according to executive director of business development, Greg Peisley.

A strong showing in 2016 after a tough few years in the market has prompted Klen to diversify into specialist materials used to certify lab equipment accuracy.
