Cabot to Invest in Capacity Increase in Belgium
Cabot Corporation announces a planned investment in new capacity to enhance its production capabilities for plastic formulations specifically for conductive compounds and masterbatches for engineering thermoplastic applications.
The strategic investment at its manufacturing facility in Pepinster, Belgium will support continued growth of Cabot’s Specialty Compounds business which aligns with Cabot’s broader strategy to drive application innovation and develop in the area of formulation solutions. "We expect recent growth trends to continue, especially in automotive applications, given macro trends such as light-weighting and the need for our customers to innovate in ways that reduce overall cost,” said Aaron Johnson, vice president for specialty compounds, EMEA and Americas. “The investment clearly demonstrates our commitment to our Specialty Compounds business and our willingness to invest to further serve evolving customer needs.”
Cabot has been formulating and selling conductive compounds for more than 30 years, and is a leader in the development and manufacture of products for use in applications including transportation, industrial packaging, electronic and electrical, and industrial safety. This planned investment will further strengthen Cabot’s commercial delivery capabilities and enable the company to expand into additional applications.
