Rep. Holmes Tours AMG Vanadium

CAMBRIDGE — State Representative Adam Holmes (R-Nashport) visited AMG Vanadium, headquartered in Cambridge, last week. Rep. Holmes spent several hours on-site speaking with company President, Hoy Frakes, and several members of the senior leadership team as well as touring the facility.

During the visit, Rep. Holmes learned about AMG Vanadium’s primary specialty: the environmentally beneficial conversion of oil refinery and power plant waste products into specialty metals. The company utilizes a proprietary process which is viewed by global refineries as the industry leading environmental solution for spent catalyst processing and metal reclamation.

“From the leadership team to the employees on the shop floor, I am extremely impressed with everyone at AMG Vanadium,” Rep. Holmes said. “I am thankful this company is located in Cambridge and look forward to helping it continue to thrive in any way we can.”

AMG Vanadium also adds immense value to the surrounding communities by giving back. As an example, for nearly a decade, AMG Vanadium has provided financial support to the math and science programs at a number of schools in the local area. AMG Vanadium recognizes education, especially within the STEM fields, as critically important to Ohio’s competitiveness in the global marketplace.
