The Compound Company to Double Production Capacity

November 26 2018

The Compound Company, the fast-growing manufacturer of EcoForte thermoplastic performance compounds and Ypare extrudable adhesive resins, is to double its production capacity with investments totalling 8 million Euros.

The move is a response to increasing market demand for the company’s high-quality speciality compounds and responsive service model. Its customers include building and construction, packaging, automotive, medical and PV module producers.

The Compound Company has begun construction of a second compounding plant, just minutes from its Plant 1 factory in Enschede, the Netherlands. Work to clear and prepare the site started on November 01, and construction of the new 8,000 square meter plant will start in December. The compounding lines will be installed in February and test runs and samples’ production are set for March next year. Full production is scheduled to start on April 01, 2019.
As well as investing in the new Plant 2, the company’s existing Plant 1 is also being upgraded, optimized and debottlenecked. This includes the installation of seven new silos for stocking polymers, each with a capacity of 70 tons.

Together, the investment in the new Plant 2 and improvements to the existing Plant 1 will double The Compound Company’s production capacity from 30 to 60 kilo tons per year. The additional capacity will be used to increase production of The Compound Company’s own EcoForte and Yparex branded products, as well as to increase capacity for its custom compounding partners.
