Solvay Specialty Polymers: Major Investments in Compounding and Extended Distribution Centers
Solvay Specialty Polymers, Alparetta, GA, USA, a manufacturer of high-performance thermoplastics, has announced a major series of global supply chain initiatives to expand the availability of its KetaSpire polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and AvaSpire polyaryletherketone (PAEK) products. This effort also benefits the global availability of Torlon polyamide-imide (PAI), a polymer whose ultra-performance capabilities complement those of PEEK and PAEK. Key components of this initiative include the deployment of new production assets in China for production of KetaSpire and AvaSpire compounds and the creation of new distribution centers for the products in vital regions of the world. Both elements of the initiative are aimed at providing availability and supply of Solvay’s ultra high-performance polymers to support growth in a diverse range of applications spanning the transportation, healthcare, electronics, oil and gas, and semiconductor manufacturing markets.
