Kem One: PVC Emulsion Capacity Extension at its Spanish Site
Kem One, Lyon, France, announced a 7,000 t/a PVC emulsion capacity extension at its Hernani site in Spain. This capital expenditure decision demonstrates the ambition of the PVC emulsion in Southern Europe, to further develop this strategic specialties business.
“By increasing PVC Emulsion production capacity to 42,000 t/a at Hernani, we will be able to partner our customers in new developments, while also continuing to assist them with current projects. Meanwhile, this investment will enable us to strengthen our positions in Europe and consolidate our presence in emerging countries”, stated Bertrand Jausseme, marketing and sales director.
An additional investment was realized for overhauling the packaging facilities to meet the needs of our customers. The flexibility of the bulk deliveries has been significantly increased.
When this production capacity increase becomes fully operational in 2013, the company will have 112,000 t overall annual production capacities for PVC emulsion at its two sites
of Saint-Auban, France, and Hernani, Spain.
