The European PPS Technical Center represents a €2.7 million investment and further strengthens the DIC Group’s global supply and technical service network for DIC.PPS compounds. As the European and the American PPS markets continue to grow, this new facility will provide the additional capability to cater to the increased demand for production and technical support.
DIC.PPS provides automotive, electronic and appliance components with outstanding resistance to heat and chemicals. An inherently non-flammable compound, DIC.PPS also eliminates the need for flame retardants. This unique combination of properties enables engineers to realize significant cost savings and produce technologically superior components.
“This new European PPS Technical Center will support these developing markets and more promptly serve our global customers,” said Mehran Yazdani, president of Sun Chemical Advanced Materials. “Furthermore, its location near Frankfurt, Europe’s largest transportation hub, makes it ideally placed to enable us to quickly access and serve our European customers.”
