Semperit expands mixing activities in Poland
| Subj: Press-releses
With five mixing lines and a capacity of 75,000 tonnes per year, the Polish plant in Bełchatów will be the largest mixing site in the Semperit Group after completion of the most recent expansion project. Around EUR 17 million was invested in the construction of “Mixer 5” in the past three years. With the new mixing line, 30,000 tonnes of rubber compounds can be produced per year, while the mixing capacity at the site is increased by a total of 67 percent.
“The in-house production of rubber compounds is a key strategic field for the Semperit Group, which will contribute to future growth. Therefore, we have invested in the expansion of our capacities and are currently evaluating the supplies for other companies through our mixing division”, says Martin Füllenbach, Chairman of the Management Board of Semperit AG Holding.
The Semperit Group has a high demand for tailor-made rubber compounds — in-house mixing is therefore indispensable and guarantees comprehensive quality control at all stages of production. In addition, many years of internal know-how in the mixing division lead to clear annual cost advantages in a high six-digit range.
The mixing activities of the Semperit Group in Europe are concentrated in Wimpassing/Austria, Odry/Czech Republic, Hückelhoven/Germany, and Bełchatów/Poland. The Polish Sempertrans location also supplies compounds to Semperform Profiles in Deggendorf/Germany for the production of window seals.
