Saluc Aramith Valley Magnetic Cue Ball
The Aramith Valley Magnetic cue ball is used on many pool tables that feature an automatic ball return. The ball has a ferrous core that trips the magnetic sensor in these tables, returning the cue ball to the end of the table instead of capturing it after a scratch. The ball is "A grade" quality, and is regulation size (2-1/4" in diameter), and is regulation weight.
Founded in 1923, Saluc was at that time a chemical industry specialized in tannery products. After 1950, this industry died out and Saluc made a conversion to the billiards balls. Today,Saluc produces and distributes billiard balls under the registered trademark Aramith in more than 85 countries, and has a marketshare of 80 % worldwide. The company is also specialised in the production of industrial balls used in all kind of applications, as well as in 9 pin bowling balls and trackballs. The exportation represents 98% of its activity. One of the major strengths of the company is its upstream integration : Saluc has its own chemical plant, to produce the phenolic resin which gives the exceptionnal characteristics to the finished products. This integration allows the price optimization and quality insurance.
