ProTec Acquires PolymersNet

Effective from June 26, 2015, ProTec Polymer Processing GmbH, Bensheim, Germany, has taken over PolymersNet GmbH. The company based in Lampertheim, Germany, is specialized in design, construction, and commissioning of powerful systems for manufacturing of long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFT) using the Pultrusion Technology

LFT system technology from ProTec produces high-grade long-fiber reinforced pellets with varied polymer matrices and types of fiber reinforcement by the Pultrusion Technology (figure: ProTec Polymer Processing)

ProTec, which previously distributed these systems exclusively as a sales partner, has now taken over PolymersNet assets. In addition to patents, experts and the supply chain, these include the LFT production line that had been used up to now for process and material developments and for specific customer trials in Lampertheim. This facility will now be set up in a specially designed technical center at the ProTec headquarters in Bensheim, where it will also be upgraded and extended.

"The takeover of PolymersNet allows us to integrate the entire LFT process chain and know-how at a single location. We can provide customized solutions flexibility and the ability to make quick decisions, while the time required to bring product and process developments to market maturity will be reduced," explains ProTec’s Managing Director Peter Theobald. In parallel to the further development of processes and products, the LFT system at the Bensheim technical center will also be made available for customer-specific trials. "To ensure an ideal infrastructure for this purpose, the new system will be equipped with a twin-screw extruder of the latest design. The control system will also feature fully automated operation of all process steps," adds Mr. Theobald. The modernized LFT production line in Bensheim will start its operation by mid of August 2015.
