Styron breaks ground on its new SSBR production line

May 11/2011

(Styron) -- Today the newly elected minister of economic affairs Mrs. Prof. Dr. Birgitta Wolff and other dignitaries joined leaders and employees from Styron to celebrate the construction of Styrons new SSBR (Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber) production line. The groundbreaking ceremony introduced an additional capacity of 50 KT at the production facility in Schkopau, Germany, and will allow Styron to help customers around the world meet the increasing demand for high performance tires.

The new production train will be built alongside existing trains and is expected to be fully operational by Q4 2012. With this capacity expansion, Styron envisions the creation of approximately 30 additional jobs at the Schkopau site. According to Ralf Irmert, business development director, Synthetic Rubber at Styron, the new train will focus on SSBR production, with the capability to produce all existing clear and oil extended Styron grades.
