Global Leading Producer of Masterbatch, Ampacet, has recently increased its capacity in the UK at its production site in Telford.
The site, which is accredited with ISO 9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 and has a capacity of approximately 2000 tonnes in colour, is designed to give extended flexibility on production lines, as well as shifts, to suit customer demands.
“With the new sales team setup that has encountered great success during 2015, the UK plant brings the domestic presence to the region focusing on providing a quality product and service with fast colour matching services, on time deliveries and guaranteed made to stock products in place,” explained Caroline Scheydecker, Ampacet’s Senior Marketing and Communications Coordinator.
The company has grown considerably since its formation in 1937, now operating 24 sites globally, producing in excess of 400,000 tonnes annually and selling its range of products in more than 90 countries.
“Ten years ago we were perceived as a commodity player. We were seen as a company that could only offer black, white and additive Masterbatch. Now, however, we are not only seen as a company offering a full product range; black, white, additives and colour Masterbatch, but also one that adds value and creates specialty products for our customers,” Scheydecker added.
The company says its success is due to its ability to partner suppliers and customers, as well as to create Masterbatch formulations that help bring products quickly to market and satisfy the needs of its customers to the best of their ability.
