At Tronox, we respect the contributions of our Operators and Trades professionals.

They are essential to the ongoing success of our global business, and we make sure we offer them a work environment that is collegiate, friendly and, above all, safe.
Our work in Asia Pacific covers a broad range of countries but our Operations and Trades talent are based in Australia. From the titanium dioxide-producing Kemerton and Australind plants that make up our Bunbury Operations to our mining operations in the Murray Basin and the South West of Western Australia, our presence in the country is significant. The Bunbury sites alone occupy 55 hectares and employ nearly 350 staff and contractors. Our Gingko, Snapper, Wonnerup mines along with our Broken Hill and Northshore mineral separation plants also employ around 350 people in total.
Whatever stage of the process you join us at – be it producing zircon or rutile-rich non-magnetic products for processing or producing titanium dioxide through the chloride process – you will find that we work together. For us, that means putting Health & Safety first, both for our people and our communities.View all roles
Our Willebroek site in Belgium is home to our distribution centre. When our products are shipped from our manufacturing plants across Europe, they come here.

Day-to-day, the distribution centre teams work hard to ensure our products get to where they need to be, when we have promised they will be there.
he Willebroek site is a tight-knit operation where everyone works together to deliver for our customers. But as well as taking a collaborative approach, every employee plays their part to ensure we maintain the highest safety standards.View all roles
Our Thann Plant employs around 330 employees and contractors and is located on a 15-hectare chemical complex in the Thur Valley, Alsace. As well as being one of our many production facilities, the Thann plant was the world’s first to produce titanium dioxide (TiO2).
At our Thann operations we use a wet chemical process which uses sulfuric acid to extract and purify TiO2 in anatase crystal form. The raw pigment is then finished into a product that is applied to specific end products, like paper, paint, plastic and rubber. The Thann plant also specializes in producing the titanium tetrachloride that is used for pearlescent pigments for automotive paints, amongst other applications. Our teams here also produce ultrafine TiO2, which is a revolutionary product used in the design of self-cleaning surfaces and to control air and water pollution.
The Thann plant’s rich heritage is something we are incredibly proud of. But we also look to the future, and every single employee at the site works together to ensure a brighter one. For us, that means making sure our Zero Harm safety vision becomes a reality.View all roles
