Styron Breaks Ground on its New SSBR Production Line
On May 11th, 2011, the newly elected minister of economic affairs Prof. Dr. Birgitta Wolff and other dignitaries joined leaders and employees from Styron to celebrate the construction of Styron’s new SSBR (Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber) production line. The groundbreaking ceremony introduced an additional capacity of 50,000 t at the production facility in Schkopau, Germany, and will allow the company to help customers around the world meet the increasing demand for high performance tires.
The new production train will be built alongside existing trains and is expected to be fully operational by Q4 2012. With this capacity expansion, the company envisions the creation of approximately 30 additional jobs at the Schkopau site.
