USA: Styrenic-Polymers Production Closer to Customers Elix Expands to North America
Elix Polymers is expanding its presence into North America. The company’s North American activities will focus on its global portfolio of ABS and ABS/PC products.
Tarragona/Spain — Key products will include ABS specialties which will be available as custom coloured grades, as well as high heat resistant grades for customers in industries such as Automotive, Appliances, Healthcare, Consumer, Toys, Electro & Electronic, and Building and Construction. The expansion will be supported by a central warehouse located in New Jersey which is intended to ensure shorter lead times for existing customers. The company’s main office is located in Florida, with an expected initial team of four by the end of 2016, to cover both the United States and Mexico. Gerhald Claussen, business manager Americas said: “This is a significant step for both our company – and our customers. Having a local team will facilitate easier communication, faster responses and shorter lead times, as well as local US$ pricing, invoicing and payments.”
