ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik Acrylics Africa (EEA), a joint venture of Evonik Industries and Ampaglas Plastics Group, is to begin producing extruded PLEXIGLAS sheets in Elandsfontein, Johannesburg, South Africa. With an initial number of 20 employees and a new extrusion facility, some several thousand metric tonne of semi-finished material will be produced per year for the African market. The products, which are manufactured in accordance with international quality standards, include standard formats as well as special sizes.

“Over the past years we have continuously expanded the visibility of the PLEXIGLAS brand in Southern Africa with the aim of becoming the market leader in this region. Producing locally means we are more flexible and can respond more quickly to customer requests and offer them more competitive products and better service. In doing so, we hope to further strengthen our good market position in this attractive growth region,” said Holger Morhart, Business Director, Evonik Acrylics Africa.
