Tessenderlo: Shake-up of its pipes business

Belgian PVC group Tessenderlo is refocusing its Plastic Pipes & Fittings business unit in a move which will boost operations in both western and central Europe. Hans Telgen will become managing director of the business, which is being renamed Plastic Pipe Systems. Telgen, who is currently director of Tessenderlo’s Dutch subsidiary Dyka, will take up the new role from 1 April. Tessenderlo said: “The business unit is seeking to focus even more on offering global solutions in the future, and thereby continue to improve customer service further.” A strategy review has been finalised for the pipes business, which will initially lead to Tessenderlo building up its operations in western Europe, especially in Belgium, France, the Netherlands and the UK. It said synergies between the various locations will be strengthened and the range of products will be expanded. The company is also planning to accelerate development of the business unit’s operations in central Europe, based on its existing plants in Poland and the Czech Republic.
