According to media reports, US-based high performance plastic compounds, composites and polymer producer A. Schulman is increasing its production capacity across Europe and the Middle East.

The producer opened a masterbatch plant in the Cerkezkoy Organized Industrial Zone, located in Tekirdag earlier this month in line with its plans to expand throughout the regional markets.

The new plant, which has 50 employees and a production capacity of 17,500 tons/year, is expected to serve Turkey as well as North Africa and the Middle East.

The company also commenced test productions at its compounding plant in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia. The 100,000 ton/year PP compound plant is a joint venture with Saudi National Petrochemical Industrial Co.

The American producer also started up a new white color concentrates production line with a production capacity of 45,000 tons/year in Givet, France during the previous months and revealed its plans for a new line for sheet molding compounds in Hamburg, Germany. The company’s six new color and additive concentrates production lines were also installed at the company’s plants in Poland and Hungary earlier this year.
