Ampacet, the leading Masterbatch producer of colors, special effects and functional additives, is proud to announce its investment in new European production capacity with a planned start-up for 4Q 2017.
The first increase in capacity will be at the company’s Messancy (Belgium) facility which is the largest Ampacet production site in Europe, and produces the complete range of products: color, additives, black and white masterbatches.
The second capacity increase will be in Dudelange (Luxembourg), where Ampacet’s European headquarters is located. This site has one of the company’s largest white masterbatch lines as well as housing their Color Center of Excellence.
These two investments are aligned with Ampacet’s objective to significantly improve the overall customer experience by reducing lead-times and offer more flexibility for deliveries. Ampacet has already invested in the Ideation Center which opened in Dudelange in 2013. A creative environment, the Ideation Center offers customers the opportunity to go from “concept to creation” using Ampacet’s innovative technology in a variety of applications with color effects.
Marcello Bergamo, Ampacet Europe’s Managing Director said “we are committed to the masterbatch industry and our investments are evidence of our willingness to serve the market properly with respect to both quality and service. We continue to develop new solutions for our customers and these new expansions will support us to deliver added value by enhancing our customer’s competitive advantage in the marketplace”.
“Our customers can always expect the highest quality standards, unmatched value propositions, honest and ethical behaviors and systematic delivery on promises. We leverage technologies, global knowledge, best practices and partnerships to achieve excellence in manufacturing efficiency and innovation,” he added.
