Thermoplastic Elastomers for Taiwan

Trinseo to Build a TPE Pilot Facility

Trinseo, Berwyn, PA/USA, is planning the construction of a thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) pilot facility in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The new facility emphasizes the company’s growth strategy for TPEs globally and will serve customers in the automotive, consumer electronics, footwear and medical markets.

Operation Starts in 2020

The pilot facility will be built at Trinseo’s existing manufacturing site in Hsinchu and will begin operation in 2020.

The investment in a state-of-the art TPE pilot facility in Asia Pacific is the next step of Trinseo’s TPE growth roadmap following the acquisition of Italian-based API S.p.A, in July 2017. Once the new pilot line in Hsinchu is operational, Trinseo will locally produce its custom engineered TPE and thermoplastic urethanes (TPU), including its bioplastics portfolio.

“The pilot facility demonstrates our commitment to offer a differentiated, globally available TPE portfolio to our customers in the automotive, consumer electronics, footwear and medical markets,” said Tim Stedman, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Development at Trinseo. “This investment in growth in the Asia Pacific region will further strengthen our ability to create growth synergies with customers between our rigid and soft-touch polymers.”

About Trinseo

Trinseo is a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders, and synthetic rubber. The company had approximately USD 4.6 billion in net sales in 2018, with 16 manufacturing sites around the world, and approximately 2500 employees.
