Zotefoams: Poland facility on track for production in Q3/2020
Zotefoams’ new facility in Brzeg, Poland, is on schedule for production to commence in Q3/2020 as planned. The plant will add 50,000 m3, an increase of some 15 %, to the company’s annual global foam production capacity. The specialist in cellular materials technology said that the site is large enough to accommodate significant future expansion.
The autoclave is on site along with ancillaries are and work is under way on installation and commissioning, with expected completion by the end of June. Only recently the delivery and siting of the impressive nitrogen tanks and compressors took place.
Group CEO David Stirling says, “Following the completion of investment projects in the UK and USA, I am delighted to report that we are also on budget and on track in Poland. The location of the new plant is key in terms of increasing flexibility and responsiveness through integrated global capacity. With significant foam production capability in the USA, UK and soon in central Europe, Zotefoams will be better placed than ever to serve our customers globally.”
