WACKER Entrusts Silicone Compounding to its Turkish Sales Partner SOLPRO

26-09-2011: WACKER, the Munich-based chemicals Group, is expanding its cooperation with the Turkish silicone compounder and distributor SOLPRO Ltd.. The two companies signed an agreement to that effect in mid-September. Accordingly, SOLPRO, besides handling sales of high (HTV) and room (RTV) temperature vulcanizing silicones, will take over the compounding of custom silicones for the Turkish market with immediate effect. The ready-to-use compounds are sold under SOLPRO’s own brand and will be labeled “Based on ELASTOSIL®”. The compounds are targeted at customers in the automotive, construction, electronics, cables and household appliance industries.

“Turkey has been an important growth market for WACKER for many years. We are ideally positioned here in solid and RTV silicone resins,” said Dr. Bernd Pachaly, head of the Engineering Silicones business unit, at the contract signing in Istanbul. He pointed out that the company now wants to systematically improve sales of silicone compounds in the region. “However, production of compounds is difficult and requires a good deal of experience,” Pachaly continued. “Our customers expect short lead times, high flexibility and a consistently high quality. In SOLPRO, we have an experienced partner who thoroughly understands the market and has the expertise and equipment to produce high-quality silicone compounds. This arrangement will allow us to serve our customers in Turkey even better than before.

”SOLPRO’s proprietor, Dr. Metin Savaskan, acknowledged the agreement as an important milestone in his cooperation with the Munich-based chemicals Group. “We are already responsible for selling WACKER silicones elastomers in Turkey. Now, we will also be able to produce ready-to-use custom products from WACKER’s silicone-rubber base materials. That opens up entirely new markets and ways of meeting our customers’ needs.”
