The French-American Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome The Quartz Corp among our members! Thanks to The Quartz Corp, today’s world and high-tech industries would not be the same without Spruce Pine, North Carolina. The company established its headquarters in this idyllic mountain town, source of the world’s purest quartz because of a unique geological event that took place 380 million years ago.

The Quartz Corp is a key supplier of high Purity Quartz sand for the semiconductor, solar, optical fiber and lighting markets.
