Kraiburg TPE Strengthens German Location
New Extrusion Line
The start-up of a new extrusion line for the production of thermoplastic elastomers at the company’s headquarters in Waldkraiburg emphasizes Kraiburg TPE’s affirmation to rely on being based in Germany. The line expands the company’s total capacity to 56,000 mt worldwide.
The demand for thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) is increasing worldwide, showing constant growth in the automotive, industry, consumer and medical markets. To guarantee reliable deliveries of its TPE compounds on a long-term basis, Kraiburg TPE has been relying for many years on its three production sites in Waldkraiburg (Germany), Buford (Georgia, USA) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).
Along with the Waldkraiburg headquarters, the production sites in North America and Asia have also been specifically developed. In the USA, Kraiburg TPE already relocated to a new production plant in Buford (near Atlanta, Georgia) in 2016. And an additional new line has recently been put into operation at the Kuala Lumpur plant as well.
