The European PPS Technical Centre, which represents a €2.7 million investment, further strengthens the DIC Group’s global supply and technical service network for DIC.PPS compounds. As the European and the American PPS markets continue to grow, this new facility will provide the additional capability to cater for the increased demand for production and technical support.
DIC.PPS provides automotive, electronic and appliance components with outstanding resistance to heat and chemicals. An inherently non-flammable compound, DIC.PPS also eliminates the need for flame retardants. This unique combination of properties enables engineers to realise significant cost savings and produce technologically superior components.
Commenting on the opening of the new multi-million pound facility, Mehran Yazdani, President of Sun Chemical Advanced Materials said, “This new European Technical Centre will support these developing markets and more promptly serve our global customers. Furthermore, its location near Frankfurt, Europe’s largest transportation hub, makes it ideally placed to enable us to quickly access and serve our European customers.”
