Troplast: Starting of own stabilizer production

HT Troplast, one of Europe’s leading PVC profile manufacturers, has started production of its own PVC stabilisers.

HT’s Profine subsidiary will cover the KBE, Kömmerling, Trocal and Knipping profile brands extruded at the various group locations in Berlin, Pirmasens and Troisdorf.

The company has invested E4m in the plant, with 20% of that being provided by the local state of Rhineland Palatinate.

The plant is at the same location as the Kömmerling plant in Pirmasens near Saarbrücken. It will provide 7,000tpa of calcium-zinc stabilisers for the group’s 300,000tpa PVC compound production once it reaches capacity in mid-2004.
