LANXESS increases production for prepolymers in Brazil

Investment of single-digit million Euro amount

18-May-2018

LANXESS AG

LANXESS Urethane Systems is building a new, state-of-the-art facility for the production of prepolymers at its site in Porto Feliz, Brazil.

Specialty chemicals company LANXESS is building a new, state-of-the-art facility for the production of prepolymers at its site in Porto Feliz, Brazil. The Urethane Systems business unit is investing a single-digit million Euro amount to expand its prepolymer production capacity, which is scheduled to come on stream in the first half of 2019. Current production at the Rio Claro site, about 200 kilometers away, will be terminated.

LANXESS will thus be managing its entire polyurethane business for South America from Porto Feliz. “South America is an important cornerstone in our global network and we are committed to the Brazilian and South American markets. Our new investment will enable us to sustainably offer local customer-specific technical service, excellent product quality, and fast and reliable product supply,” says Dr. Markus Eckert, Head of the Urethane Systems business unit.
