Victrex: 70 Percent More PAEK
Following a recent announcement, Victrex Polymer Solutions will increase its production capacity to an annual 7,000 t in the beginning of 2015. The company is now the world leader in polyaryletherketones (PAEK), which also comprise Victrex PEEK polymers, and PEEK-based Aptiv films, as well as Vicote coatings and Victrex pipes. Capacity is currently 4,250 t per year. After launch of the new and thus third stand-alone plant at the company’s headquarters in Great Britain, Victrex will have increased its capacity by approx. 70 %.
This strategic decision was due to the record turnover achieved last business year, as well as the vast potential of PEEK growth in the transport, industrial and electronics sectors. This investment also supports the long-term security of the company’s high performance polymer’s supply.
