News 13.02.2019

Baerlocher, one of the leading global manufacturers of additives for the plastics industry is investing US$30 million in its Indian subsidiary, doubling its existing capacity by 2021 with phase one due for completion in mid-2019.

Already India's largest PVC stabiliser producer, this investment demonstrates the company's commitment to the buoyant Indian plastics industry, supporting its growth and providing choice for convertors to enable their transition towards sustainable Calcium based stabiliser systems for all PVC applications.

Already phase one of the expansion including a new warehouse and an immediate increase to its Lead and Calcium based stabiliser production capacity is in the final phase of construction and will be commissioned by mid-2019. A recent acquisition of 25 acres of adjacent land to the current facility will provide the footprint for the next phase of expansion which will accommodate a world class manufacturing facility dedicated to producing only Calcium based stabilisers and metal stearates.
