SAO PAULO, BRAZIL/COLOGNE, GERMANY: Lanxess inaugurated its new high-tech plastics plant in Porto Feliz, Brazil. The specialty chemicals company has invested around €20 million in the facility, which will initially have an annual capacity of 20,000 metric tonne. The new plant is supporting above all the growing demand toward products for the megatrend mobility in Latin America. With the new facility, Lanxess is able to meet the local demand for high-tech plastics used in the automotive sector more quickly and more efficiently.

“This major investment in a state-of-the-art compounding plant underlines our strong commitment to our customers in Brazil and Latin America, who can now count on local production, engineering and technical services as well as excellent product quality and customer service,” said Werner Breuers, Member of the Board of Management, Lanxess.
