With a groundbreaking ceremony at the Shanghai site, China, the construction work for the expansion of a „Plexiglas“ molding compounds production plant has officially begun. The expanded plant is set to begin operations by the second quarter of 2023.|
“The expansion of capacities in China is an important further step toward implementing our global growth strategy for PMMA molding compounds”, says COO Hans-Peter Hauck. Röhm began the systematic expansion of its special molding compounds three years ago with an additional compounding line in the US. “With the expansion of the capacities of the Shanghai plant and the simultaneous extension of the compounding system, we are significantly consolidating our strong market position in China. At the same time, we are also forging ahead with expansion in Europe with strategic investments in PMMA molding compounds.”
Röhm is by their own account the world’s only supplier of MMA and PMMA with downstream compounding in the three key regions Asia, North America and Europe.
Whether it’s crystal clear molding compounds, grades with modified property profiles, or special colorings: special products of the „Plexiglas“ brand are used predominantly in the automotive and lighting industries, as well as in household applications and in extrusion.
