After the fire incident on 20.11.2021 at the AF-COLOR plant in the industrial area Scheid 27, Niederzissen (Rhineland-Palatinate), normal operations can be resumed from 28.02.2022.
The renovation of the production areas affected by the fire for the manufacture of the product groups AF-Color® (color masterbatches) and AF-Complex® (additive masterbatches) has now been completed. The hall complex and the extrusion lines located therein can be fully used again as of 28th February. Furthermore, AF-COLOR has two additional extrusion lines for color and additive masterbatch production at its disposal. This has even significantly increased the total capacity available for the masterbatch business at the Scheid site.
The production of the AF-Carbon® product range (carbon black masterbatches) could be continued without restrictions just a few days after the fire incident.
