Effective from 1 September 2013, Ineos Styrenics International SA and Biesterfeld Plastic GmbH have agreed on a distribution agreement on the global distribution of Polystyrene based microgranulates from the production site in Breda in the Netherlands. The existing customers have already been informed by Ineos Styrenics about this step in August.
Polystyrene based microgranulates are used in many segments such as flame protection masterbatches and compounds, colour masterbatches as well as talcum and calcium carbonate filled Polystyrene masterbatches and Styrene based moulding compounds.
Martin Umbach, Business Manager Standard Polymers, comments: "With this strategic cooperation Biesterfeld substantially strengthens the distribution portfolio for the additive and compounding market. This segment is one of the key targets for the future growth of Biesterfeld Plastic."
