Warrington/United Kingdom – Speciality chemicals company Perstorp doubles the production capacity of its caprolactone plant at Warrington, England. According to company officials, Perstorp sees this development as a reaction to recent shortages of caprolactone due to an increasing international demand for this speciality chemical.

“We are very committed to supporting the market for high end niche products that can be enhanced through the use of caprolactones,” says Bob Wasson, Sales and Business Development Director Asia. Currently, Perstorp aims to strengthens its position on the Asian market for speciality chemicals. "Now that the second stream is in operation I'm really looking forward to working more closely with the business in Asia. This is where we believe the greatest growth potential for caprolactones exists," Wasson added.
