Evonik establishes JV in South Africa

May 08/2012

(evonik) -- Evonik Industries established a joint venture, Evonik Acrylics Africa (EAA), with the South African plastics processor Ampaglas Plastics Group for extrusion of PLEXIGLAS  sheet products. The new company is headquartered in Elandsfontein, Johannesburg.

The goal of the joint venture, in which Evonik holds a 51 percent stake, is the production of high-quality PLEXIGLAS sheeting and its marketing, particularly in the growth markets of the African continent. The focus here lies on the building and architecture market segments, the design-oriented lighting technologies segment, and furniture, shopfitting, and exhibition booth construction.

"The new company combines the advantages of both its parents: production of innovative products by high international quality standards, coupled with high flexibility and short response times as a result of local production," says Michael Traxler, head of Evonik's Acrylic Polymers Business Line. Evonik ensures a continuous supply of raw materials from its production sites for molding compounds in Germany, China, and the U.S.
