Lamotte/France – The Weylchem Group of Companies officially puts into operation a new multi-purpose custom manufacturing plant at its French site in Lamotte in the Hauts-de-France region. This investment of around 7.64 million dollars significantly enhances the site’s flexibility and capacity in synthesizing modern, complex and even corrosive molecules. A high level of automation, including the use of robotic elements, allows for even greater efficiency.

The project consisted of a comprehensive overhaul of an existing production line, by adding key elements such as an acid-proof 4m 2 Hastelloy filter dryer, a thin-film evaporator and a 10m 3 stainless steel reactor. As a result, temperatures of up to 200°C and a service pressure of up to 8 bars can now be reached.
