Victrex: New Plant for Early 2015
Victrex Polymer Solutions plans to increase production capacity by around 70% for its Victrex Paek polymers reflecting confidence in the growth potential for global demand across a wide and growing range of applications in the transport, industrial and electronics sectors.
This new capacity will add 2,900 metric tonnes (MT) of polymer output annually and will come on stream in early 2015. Total annual production after completion will then stand at more than 7,000 MT per annum, an increase of around 70% on Victrex’s current capacity of 4,250 MT per annum.
This new capacity investment follows recently reported sales results for Victrex’s financial year ending 30th September 2012. Sales volumes for the full year ended at 2,904 tonnes, a new record, which combined with a strong, and vital pipeline of future applications, supports this key investment decision.
