OBERHAUSEN, GERMANY: Oxea has mechanically completed its latest production plant for specialty esters, “Ester 2”, in Oberhausen, on schedule. This is a major milestone for the company. Oxea will commence start-up activities at Ester 2 and will shortly begin production. This new, ultramodern facility will increase Oxea’s worldwide production capacity for specialty esters by over 50 per cent.

Oxea now has three specialty ester production units and a fourth is currently being built in China. “Oxea is seeing a steady increase in demand for its specialty esters worldwide. With our new production unit we will continue to improve our flexibility, delivery capacity and support our customers in their growth,” said Miguel Mantas, Sales and Marketing, Executive Board Member, Oxea. “In our new facility we will manufacture key components for the production of innovative polymer films for which there is strong demand in the chemical industry,” added Mantas.

“Ester 2 constitutes an important investment and will enable us to further expand our market positioning,” said Dr Martina Floel, Spokesperson for Oxea Executive Board. “On the one hand, we are strategically investing in new production capacity worldwide, as exemplified by our new facility in China. We are thus extending our geographical reach and expanding into growth markets. On the other hand, we are continuously enhancing our specialty chemicals expertise and our product portfolio,” added Floel.
