According to media reports, Turkey-based PVC pipe and profile manufacturer PIMAS, the majority stake in which is owned by Belgium’s Deceuninck NV, has announced that they would resume their operations at the new plant in Kartepe, Kocaeli, Turkey.

The company previously reported in a statement that its Gebze production plant, the company’s only plant in Turkey, would be permanently shut as of March 31. Lower profitability and zoning and licensing issues as well as infrastructure deficiencies were cited as the main reasons behind their decision. The company reported that the new plant houses new extrusion and laminate coating lines with improved technology.

PIMAS was founded in 1963 and Pimapen, the company’s most prominent brand, has a retail network consisting of more than 1,400 distributors.
