SITTARD, NETHERLANDS: Royal DSM said that it is in the process of expanding the capacity of its speciality polymers plants in Emmen and Geleen, the Netherlands. DSM Engineering Plastics is responding to strong customer demand in high-temperature polyamides (PAs) and thermoplastic copolyesters (TPC) with this expansion.

DSM Engineering Plastics capacity expansion follows solid growth in consumer electronics and automotive markets and the related increasing demand for high-performance plastics such as Stanyl (PA46), ForTii (PA4T), EcoPaXX (PA410) and Arnitel (TPC).

The investment underlines DSM’s commitment to the industry and strengthens its long-term position as a leader in the high-performance plastics market.

“Our global asset footprint and real-time supply network allow us to rapidly respond to meet our customer’s requirements. To continue to stay in tune with our customer’s needs, we have successfully completed expansion projects for our Stanyl, ForTii and EcoPaXX product streams leading to a 50 percent capacity increase. We are also in the process of bringing 25 percent additional Arnitel capacity online in 2018,” said Paresh Bhakta, VP global operations at DSM Engineering Plastics.
