Degussa: PMMA extrusion in Russia

The Plexiglas division of Degussa, which extrudes PMMA sheet, is to begin sheet production in Russia next year.The production should begin by mid-2004. The sheet will be produced by a three-way joint venture company, owned by Degussa’s subsidiary Rohm, and two Russian companies that currently market Plexiglas in the region: Unichem Group and ZAO Orgsteklo.
The planned capacity, of several thousand tonnes, will meet demand from both Russia and neighbouring countries in the CIS. Construction of the plant, which will be located in Podolsk in the greater Moscow area, is expected to begin this month.
