Plastics distributor, Biesterfeld Group, has announced the creation of a new business division for its performance rubber portfolio.
Biesterfeld Performance Rubber GmbH will commence operations on 1 July 2016 with the aim of further developing the Group’s rubber business strategically, while strengthening its role as a leading European distributor in the sector.
"We offer a global distribution network for rubber compounds to our customers and suppliers. In doing so we can draw on many years of expertise within the Biesterfeld Group," explained Sascha Hennig, who assumes management of the new division, along with Peter Wilkes.
"We will focus on further expanding cooperation with international market leaders and are able to leverage synergies within the Biesterfeld Group to the benefit of our suppliers and customers,” Hennig added.
Wilkes commented: “Our focus is on the distribution of synthetic rubber compounds, of high-quality silicone and fluorosilicone rubbers, carbon black and additives. The current rubber portfolio will be complemented by high performance polymers and additives.”
Biesterfeld Performance Rubber will be active in Europe, Latin America and North Africa, with local technical application support available.
