Elix Polymers Brings Styrenic-Polymer Business to North America
Elix Polymers, Tarragona, Spain, supplier of high-performance acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and polycarbonate/ABS (ABS/PC) polymers used in numerous industries, is expanding its business and physical presence into North America. The company’s North American activities will focus on its global portfolio of ABS and ABS/PC products. Key amongst these are ABS specialties which will be available as custom coloured grades, as well as ELIX's unique technology high heat resistant grades, offering specific customer-oriented solutions. Key markets to benefit from this move include Automotive, Appliances, Healthcare, Consumer, Toys, Electro & Electronic, and Building and Construction.
Elix Polymers’ extended presence in North America will be supported by a local central warehouse located in New Jersey which will facilitate shorter lead times for existing customers and an efficient operation throughout the country. The company’s main office is located in Florida, with an expected initial team of four by the end of 2016, to cover both the United States and Mexico.
Gerhald Claussen, business manager Americas said: “This is a significant step for both our company – and our customers. Having a local team will facilitate easier communication, faster responses and shorter lead times, as well as local USD pricing, invoicing and payments.”
