Baerlocher to expand its calcium-based PVC stabiliser plant in UK by more than 50%

October 18/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Baerlocher, a leading global manufacturer of additives for the plastics industry, is investing in its production plant in Bury, in order to increase the production capacity of its calcium-based polyvinyl chloride (PVC) stabiliser plant by more than 50%, as per the company's press release.

The expantion will be reached by installation of additional new mixing and granulation units in 2022.

The present expansion will support the strong demand in all new and recycled PVC applications and reinforces the companys commitment to the post Brexit UK and Irish markets.

Andy Jones, the groups Global PVC Additives Head stated: For the past 25 years, the Bury site has established itself as the premier solid PVC stabiliser production plant in the UK. This expansion begins the next chapter for the company, as we approach our 50th anniversary in the UK during 2023, with an increasingly challenging regulatory framework and complexity in supply chains.

As MRC reported earlier, in 2017, the Baerlocher USA unit of Baerlocher Group built a third reactor making plastics additives in Cincinnati. The project increase by 50% Baerlcohers production of calcium, zinc, sodium and other metal soaps in Cincinnati, where Baerlocher USA is based. It also further positioned the firm to meet steadily accelerating demand from the North American polyolefin and PVC industries.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's overall production of unmixed PVC totalled 746,700 tonnes in the nine months of 2021, up by 4% year on year. All producers increased their output.

The Baerlocher Group is a leading manufacturer of additives for the plastics industry. Its portfolio includes a broad range of stabilizers and other additives suitable for all polymer and a range of non-polymer applications. Baerlocher has a strong focus on customer and employee needs and is highly committed to innovation and sustainability. Its pioneering and proactive role is underlined by the support provided to the PVC industry during the transition from lead to calcium-based stabilizers and by its innovative lubricant systems for wood plastic composites.
